Debate over the remaining Ryder Cup spots is heating up, and the season-ending FedEx Cup is rolling on. With the first playoff event done and dusted at the Northern Trust Open, let’s run through some of the most entertaining caddie-related moments from the past week.

A Date With Tiger

Caddie Network contributor Kip Henley had a DAY on Sunday, and good for him. For 14 long years he’s waited, patiently, until it finally came. A date with Tiger Woods.

Kip’s player, Austin Cook, mustered a 2-over 73. Tiger, for his part, shot 1-under 70, and Kip seemed to have a great time along the way. After the round, Kip shared some insights that were both fascinating and downright fun.

That’ll be a story to tell the grandkids.

Not Now!

There’s an art to caddying. A balance that involves knowing exactly what to say, and precisely the right time to say it. Max Homa’s caddie got half of that equation right on Friday.

After an impressive opening round 69 on the Web.com Tour’s Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, Homa stumbled to a 2-over 73 on Saturday. Walking down the final hole, Homa’s caddie attempted to lift his player’s spirits that didn’t *quite* hit the mark.

Sister-Sister

Brooke Henderson is one of my favorite golfers to watch, on any tour. She’s a 20-year-old phenom already with a major to her name, and on Sunday, she added her national open to her resume. It’s the first time a Canadian has won the CP Women’s Open since 1973, and she did it with her sister on the bag. It’s always something that warms my heart a little more than usual.

You see lots of husband-wife, father-son duos, but not many sibling player-caddie duos. At least now we can name Brooke and Brittany alongside the other great sibling caddie-player duos, joining the likes of Austin-Dustin Johnson, and Mark-Davis Love III.

Long Live The King

And finally, a word of warning: If you come at the king, you best not miss. In golf, that means never, ever, EVER doubting the awesome strength of caddie Duane Bock’s truly magnificent calf muscles.

A potential challenger to Bock’s throne emerged over the weekend, and while his calf muscles were respectable — it must be said — they didn’t hold up to further inspection.

LONG LIVE DUANE BOCK’S CALVES!

  1. Austin and Dustin Johnson and Mark and Davis Love have both won majors and 10+ tournaments together. It seems like those partnerships are at least as successful as Brooke and Brittany.
