Greetings and welcome to another edition of TCN’s caddie social media round up.

This past week, the PGA Tour visited Chiba, Japan for the inaugural ZOZO Championship.

And it sure didn’t disappoint, as Tiger Woods won for the 82nd time in his incredible PGA Tour career, tying the great Sam Snead for most wins all time. Woods opened with rounds of 64-64 and never looked back.

Caddies took notice, naturally…

While Woods was no doubt the main attraction — and always is wherever he goes — we loved the culture the caddies were taking in off the course.

Let’s take a look at some of the goings on.

Kenny Harms (Kevin Na) loves sushi almost as much as he loves pizza. He indulged:


Then there was this GREAT video of Harms and Ted Scott getting turned away from a Japanese establishment (by a bouncer who looked eerily similar to Na… ha):


Harms also took fellow looper Wayne Birch (Troy Merritt) out for his first taste of sushi. Lucky for all of us, Kenny documented it with this video:


Several of our followers noted Wayne should be hit for a slow-play penalty. We’ll let it slide.

Harms called the sushi at Edokko Sushi Narita Japan, “Hands down the best sushi I have ever had!”


Speaking of Birch, during a practice round, he posted this video where he ran into two “GOATS”:


Harms, meanwhile, found time to take in the Narita Temple, a Buddhist temple founded in the year 940:


Upon arrival in Japan, Aaron Flener (J.T. Poston) might have gotten his location mixed up. That’ll happen after some serious air travel.

Duane Bock (Kevin Kisner) had a funny response:

Geno Bonnalie (Joel Dahmen) mostly enjoyed his time in Japan:

Also, really cool in Japan — caddie Damon Green got to meet up with a former college roommate:

Sunday in Japan was a marathon day of golf, as players played the third round and got in most of the final round. Here’s how caddie Dale Vallely (Abraham Ancer) stayed nourished:


There were no fans allowed on the course — because of the conditions — on Sunday in Japan. But that didn’t stop them from greeting players, as Flener captured here:

Early in the week, caddie Ian Finnis (Tommy Fleetwood) was keeping a great attitude despite the uncooperative weather:


Finally, with Halloween coming up on Thursday, people are already posting photos in their costumes. Here’s one from Instagram user @jmatak, with his best dress-up as Joe LaCava:


Kip Henley (Stewart Cink) and family got in on the Halloween spirit, too…
