Throughout 2021, The Caddie Network will be running a monthly series called, “Caddie Confidential,” where we will survey dozens of caddies on the PGA Tour to tackle hot-button issues in golf with everything from a Tour with and without fans to gambling and a whole lot more. In these monthly surveys, we allow the caddies to answer anonymously in an effort to draw out their most honest responses.
