The caddie to Padraig Harrington collapsed at the Volvo Champions and was treated for dehydration on Friday. Ronan Flood, also Harrington's brother-in-law, fell ill on the sixth hole of the second round and was rushed to the clubhouse at Durban Country Club, where he was treated by a doctor. Flood carried Harrington's bag when the Irishman won the 2007 and 2008 British Opens and the 2008 U.S. PGA Championship. Harrington sought help from Irish-born photographer Pat Cashman as a stand-in caddie before organizers arranged for a replacement.
