There’s no denying that things have gotten better and far more lucrative for caddies over the years.
But even still, life on the road can be a grind and it can be tough on the family.
No one knows that better than Paul Tesori (Webb Simpson’s caddie) and his wife Michelle, who have a young son, Isaiah.
Paul had a recent stretch at the end of the 2017-18 PGA Tour where he was at home for just six days over a 63-day stretch.
Unlike the Tour players, caddies don’t have the luxury of being able to take their families on the road whenever they want.
Michael Collins, America’s Caddie, recently took a trip to the Tesori home in Ponte Vedra, Florida, and learned more about how being a successful PGA Tour caddie doesn’t necessarily mean everything about the job is 100 percent glamorous.
