What is your greatest memory as a caddie?
Working with my player at the finals of tour school in 2010. On the last hole he had a 200 yard shot over water and out of the rough with a tough wind. He wanted to lay up, but I was able to settle him down and convince him to go ahead and hit the shot. He hit a great shot, 2 putted for par and earned his pga tour card. To see my friend be that successful was awesome.
