While the world waits breathlessly to see whom Tiger Woods will select as his next caddie, an Irish bookmaker has decided to make things interesting.

Paddy Power, which advertises itself as "Ireland's largest bookmaker," has installed Fanny Sunesson as a 6-4 favorite to become Woods' caddie. Sunesson, the long-time caddie for Nick Faldo, now loops for Henrik Stenson.

The next two picks are Byron Bell at 13-8 and Paul Tesori at 7-4. Bell is a childhood friend of Woods' who has caddied for him several times. Tesori used to caddie for West Chester's Sean O'Hair before the two parted company after last season, and now works for Webb Simpson.

Woods announced Wednesday he has parted ways with Steve Williams, his caddie of 12 years, who was on his bag for 72 victories including 13 majors.
