Welcome to The Caddie Network
The Caddie Network’s website (www.thecaddienetwork.com) launched in June 2018, with the goal of providing golf and sports fans an insider’s perspective with an intimate and entertaining perspective different than anything else in sport, utilizing the expertise of those we consider to be the game’s greatest untapped source: caddies.
The Caddie Network (TCN) has quickly become the fresh, new voice in golf, delivering insight and an authentic perspective from professional and amateur caddies. TCN provides golf fans the opportunity to see the game, the lifestyle and the many unique experiences through the lens of caddies: the individuals, who day-to-day and event-to-event, are closest to the greatest players in the world.
Whether it’s a key moment, a key shot, studying the break on a tricky putt, or being a friend, a psychologist and a coach all rolled into one, no one is closer to the best players in the world than their respective caddies.
Then there’s the great tales that come with life on the road — we tell those stories, too.
With engaging features, surveys, photos, videos and more, TCN brings you a step closer to the best seat in the house and gives you a deeper appreciation for what life truly is like out on the Tour.
We hope you enjoy these stories and share them with friends.

Looking forward to some great stories and writing. All the best guys!
Sounds interesting and compelling. Would love to contribute based on running the oldest caddie services company in Texas.
Looking forward to this.Thanks for doing it.
Newb on the Network. Looking forward to following. Is there a regular Loopers List (Caddies with Players) for every tournament somewhere?

I know it’s uncomfortable, but I would love to read about player/caddie changes every week, even if it’s just reporting the switch and nothing else.
I’d also love to be able to search the site by caddie name for related content.

As volunteer Caddiemaster for the Chubb Classic & the CME Championship, i am often asked by people – including the folks at The Golf Channel – for the player/Caddie list. As noted by Mr McCalmont this changes very often, but it would be great if TCC would be able to provide even projected lists.
Hey TJ. Great site. Nice write up in this weeks SBJ. Keep up t(e great work.
Is there a website that posts the majority of player/caddie combos?
Chick — It’s very difficult to keep up with since, in a lot of cases, the combos change so frequently. Sometimes you can find a list here (in cases where the PGA Tour releases a list from its tournaments): https://theaptc.com/
Hope that helps.
Just happened upon this site…great reads and look forward to more.
Your site is a nice find. I grew up in the bag room and caddy yard and learned a lot about member-behavior at private clubs. Many of the top tour caddies in the late ’60s and early 70’s use to loop out of a small circle of clubs in northern New Jersey at the time.
Some of the more famous caddies I watched and learned from as a young teenager was “Rabbit”, who caddied for Gary Player. Willie Peterson, who caddied for Nicklaus during Jack’s five Master’s wins. Herman Mitchell, who caddied for Lee Trevino and was always around for a month or two. And Ironman, who was also known as Caveman, who looped for some guy named Palmer.
I see you hail from Rhode Island as do I. I’m sure we know many of the same local players.
Hey dale, I also grew up in a caddy yard. Started looping age 14 (1975) at annandale in Pasadena California. Worked almost every weekend for over 10 years. Worked as an engineer and teacher while the kids were growing up and now I am semi-retired spend winters in Palm Springs and summers in cape Breton looping at Cabot courses. Funny how things go full circle.
Sounds great! Good luck!
Hi II Just wanted to ask Billy Foster Seve Caddie. Seve played with a ping anser putter but which one? ie Anser 1, 2, 3, could he let me know please Tony Parkes
Great storytelling, just the tonic!
Great stuff. Really appreciate the content and caddie profiles. Having my sons growing up caddying and one an Chick Evans Scholar, I have great appreciation for what you do.
TCN gets better & better … thanks for the refreshing inside look into the golf world through the eyes of the caddie!
Thanks for giving this most under appreciated profession its due! As a club caddie, our job is not unlike that of a tour caddie: to provide our player(s) the best opportunity to excel on the course.
