The most wonderful time of the year is upon us as golfers everywhere brace for The Masters and Augusta National this week. This is a unique year, of course, as the first ever Augusta National Women’s Amateur was held over the weekend, giving everyone an early glimpse at golf’s mecca.

Tournament champion Jennifer Kupcho relied on a caddie local to Augusta, Brian McKinley, to partner with her throughout the weekend. This was a major step for Kupcho, whose father Mike served as her usual caddie.

Looking forward to Masters Week, one can never get enough inside footage of the hallowed grounds on social. Kevin Na’s caddie, Kenny Harms, has provided some top-tier coverage from his point-of-view via his Instagram.

Finally this week, sometimes you can take the looper out of the profession, but not the other way around. Former caddie-turned-broadcaster Jim ‘Bones’ Mackay proved this during the PGA Tour’s Valero Texas Open last week when this small, yet important, gesture was caught on TV.
