How many shots do you save with a good caddie!
Whether it’s just finding your ball, or giving you the accurate yardage, or giving you the proper club, or giving you good reads on the green…the caddie is a great asset on the course.
A very cool link for people who started out as a caddie…
Bradley’s caddie rewarded with Caddy
The HP Byron Nelson Championship distinguishes itself for caddies. It awards the man on the bag for the tournament winner a Cadillac Escalade . Keegan Bradley’s caddie Steve Hale walked away with a special bonus Sunday. Hale just hooked up with Bradley seven weeks ago when mutual situations allowed them to get on the same page.
Hale credited his wife with allowing him to get back into the caddie game.
“I caddied right out of college for four years and then I went home and had a real life and real job,” Hale said. “Credit to my wife, she sent me out for a second stint.”

A tribute to the professional caddie.
Where did the term “Caddie” come from? When Mary, later Queen of Scots, went to France as a young girl (for education & survival), Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scot game “golf”. †So he had the first golf course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. †To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played, Louis hired cadets from a military school to accompany her. †Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run), she took the practice with her. †In French, the word cadet is pronounced ‘ca- day’ and the Scots changed it into “caddie.” So now you know! WHOS YOUR CADDIE!
