SAN ANTONIO -- Lance Ten Broeck finished his round at the Valero Texas Open before going back to his real job: caddie.

The 53-year-old former tour regular shot an even-par 70 on Friday before toting Jesper Parnevik's bag the rest of the afternoon at La Cantera Golf Club.

Ten Broeck arrived as Parnevik's caddie, but was called up Thursday as an alternate. He was so unprepared he had to buy pants at a nearby mall and borrow clubs.

He shot a 1-over 141 through two rounds and was a longshot to make the cut, but wasn't too upset before being carted over to rejoin Parnevik.

Ten Broeck, who became a caddie about a decade ago, said "it's something I always wanted to do" and that "I wasn't going to pass it up."
