‘Under The Strap’ Podcast: A chat with Matt Hauser and a preview of Mayakoba

In this ‘Under the Strap’ podcast, John Rathouz welcomes longtime caddie Matt Hauser. Hauser spent years with the likes of J.J. Henry and Johnson Wagner. This week at the World Wide Technology Championship in Mayakoba, he’ll be on the bag for new dad Harold Varner III.

Hauser caddied for Wagner just last week in Bermuda — in brutal conditions, where they made the cut — and talks about how caddying for Varner this week came to be. Hauser goes through some of what you can expect to see at El Camaleon Golf Club (a course he has caddied at every year since 2009) and also explains how form doesn’t count for everything once a tournament begins.

  1. Excellent inside info from a caddie that speaks from experience. Had the pleasure of touring the course with him while he was with Johnson. And the restaurant rec’s are spot on. Try the pulpo !
