What is the best part about being a caddie?
Playing a small part in the success of some of the most talented athletes in the world has been great. We get to see professional golf from a perspective that many people would do anything to experience. The buzz of being in contention with your player is what makes the airports and hotel rooms throughout the season all worthwhile. Fortunately, I love to travel the world.
