Fair way home for caddy Bill.

Byline: By MARK ELLIS

BILL Murray has explained that he was just "giving friends a lift home" after driving a golf buggy through Stockholm city centre last month.

The Groundhog Day star, 56, was stopped by Swedish police in the early hours crawling along the road after borrowing the cart from his hotel.

Asked by a journalist "What the heck were you doing?", he said he had been invited to Sweden for a pro-am tournament.

The keen golfer said: "I was driven to a party in a cart. The people I was with didn't wish to drive home, so I said I would drive.

"I ended up stopping and dropping people off on the way, like a bus. As the last couple got out - who wished to be dropped at a 7/11, which I didn't even know they had in Stockholm - police came over and assumed I was drunk."

Murray, at the Venice Film Festival for his latest film The Darjeeling Limited, helpfully added: "I tried to explain to them that I was a golfer."
