Welcome to another addition of our caddie social media round up!

With the Houston Open having been completed on Sunday — a terrific victory for Lanto Griffin — the PGA Tour now heads to Asia for a three-week swing.

But, before everyone heads out to the other side of the world, here’s a look at what we loved on social media over the last week.

Shoutout to Levelwear Golf, a company that has done a tremendous job at select tournaments over the last several months to make sure the caddies are HOOKED UP.

What Levelwear is doing hasn’t gone unnoticed and is certainly appreciated…

Caddie Damian Lopez is a highly-recommended Instagram follow (@caddie_wagen). Here’s some of the stuff he pumped out in Houston:

As we all know, caddie Geno Bonnalie is always providing some comic relief… usually poking fun at himself. Last week, he shared a letter he wrote his idol — Fred Couples — when he was just a young boy, which included a Couples-inspired rendition of “The Night Before Christmas.”

Bonnalie’s buddy and fellow looper, Aaron Flener, said what we were all probably thinking…

In other Bonnalie news, the family picked up a new, adorable puppy. Geno decided to source out his followers as they tried to determine a name.

One follower offered up a name suggestion not included in the poll, but we absolutely loved — and so did Geno.

Kevin Na won in Vegas two Sundays ago and, over the last couple of years, has become known as the master of the “walk-in putt.” It’s hilarious stuff and so fun to watch. Caddie Ted Scott loves it, too, but wanted to remind everyone that there’s a certain 15-time major winner who has long been the kind of the “walk-in.”

Speaking of Na, shortly after the Vegas win, his caddie Kenny Harms went over to Asia early for a little R&R ahead of the CJ Cup and shared some photos of the breathtaking trip:

Lastly, just an update on an item we mentioned last week, about LPGA player Kim Kaufman raising money for her caddie Audrey, who suffered an injury that has kept her off the course since August. Kaufman posted this:

Here’s the message from Audrey:

Thank you everyone. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the generous donations. I’m overwhelmed with the kindness and love I have received.
My surgery on my right hand went great. I should be good as new in a few weeks.
Thank you, love Audrey

Great news, Audrey!
