We are back this week with another social media roundup from the world of our favorite loopers. In today’s installment, we bring you a healthy mix of social shares and article highlights from the past week.
First up, it’s always nice when caddies get a little something special for their efforts. These road warriors often spend week after week traveling together, staying together at hotels, and even carpooling to the course to meet up with their players. Every so often, however, something incredible happens that reminds us all that there is still good in this world.
They let me park in the parking lot today. #blessed

We all know these guys work hard on — and off — the course during a tournament week. Taking time to care for the occasional sore muscle or achy joint is crucial for any caddie to stay at their best. At last week’s Bryson Nelson, caddie Damon Green snapped this photo of the on-site physio accommodations for the loopers.

It always feels good to do something special for those in need. Longtime legendary caddie Hylton James (JJ) is a name well-known on the pro tour circuit, having carried in both the PGA and Web Tours. A recent health struggle has led him to need heart surgery, and fellow caddie Aaron Flener took to social to share JJ’s story.
