Power pairing: Victor Dubuisson (r) hopes that Mick Doran (l) can spur him on to Masters glory.

Victor Dubuisson, who will become just the ninth French golfer to compete in the Masters at Augusta National this week, has chosen experienced English caddie Mick Doran to help chart his way around the famed course.

Dubuisson separated from regular Argentine caddie Sergio Palma after a disappointing 62ndplace finish at Doral last month.

He has now opted for Doran, who has worked previously with the likes of Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood, Darren Clarke and Trevor Immelman, who won the Masters in 2008.

In all, Doran has caddied at 10 Masters and has been involved in several Ryder Cup campaigns.

World No21 Dubuisson, who clinched his spot in the Masters with a runner-up finish to Justin Day at the WGC Match Play tournament in February, is a Masters rookie.

“Victor has the good fortune of having at his disposal a very good caddie who knows the course inside out, having caddied there a hundred or so times,” said Thomas Levet, whose 13th place in 2005 is the best-ever showing by a Frenchman at the Masters.
