What’s the hardest part about being a Tour caddie?

The hardest part of being a Tour caddie is probably one of the most personal questions that could be asked. For me, something as simple as finding a clean place to do laundry gives me the most stress. I would imagine — for those it applies to — missing your kids’ special moments would be tough, too. It’s also hard when you’re relying on another person’s talent and abilities to earn your living. Working in the rain is pretty tough, too.
