Caroline Wozniacki has not had as much success on the court as she may have liked in recent years, and perhaps she is looking to go down a new path; she was spotted acting as caddy for fiancé Rory McIlroy in Augusta at the Masters par-three tournament.

In the fun event, Northern Ireland star McIlroy tweeted his delight when his fiancee managed to sink a 30ft putt. Her talents with a racquet are clearly transferable to wood as well; no wonder McIlroy was impressed.

The golfing giant was preparing for the impending Masters with the traditional par-three curtain raiser when Wozniacki - sporting a fresh pink hairstyle - came along to reprise the role she held last year. 

Wozniacki revealed she will be down all week to support her hubby-to-be as he looks to live up to his tag as favourite and win the Masters, which begins today. 

The Danish beauty announced her engagement to the 24-year-old golfer at the start of the year and the pair are often seen together.

Her appearance at the golf came off the back of a semi-final loss to Ana Ivanovic at the Monterrey Open last week.

The former world no.1 has faced a difficult few years on the court and has since slipped to 15th in the world rankings. She is yet to win a Grand Slam as well; a loss in the final of the US Open against Kim Clijsters in 2009 is as close as Wozniacki has come to breaking her duck on the biggest stage.

This year has seen a slight improvement for the 23-year-old with her reaching the semi-final in Dubai. Venus Williams was victorious on that occasion, and she was beaten on the Monterrey run. However, she was also knocked out of the Australian Open in round three by Gabrine Muguruza back in January.

To gain some vital match practice on clay for the French Open, Wozniacki is scheduled to compete at the 2014 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Germany later this month.

The winner of 21 WTA singles titles will be hoping to beat her previous best at Roland Garros; she was a defeated quarter-finalist in 2010 against eventual winner Francesca Schiavone. 

In a busy time of the year on the tennis circuit, there will only be a few weeks to recover from the French Open before Wimbledon kicks off; Wozniacki fares even worse on the London grass; she has never passed the fourth round.
