We’ve come a long way, baby. Twenty years ago nobody knew our names, few people cared about what we said, and we caddies never, ever made any headlines.
It looks as though Tiger Woods’ bagman Stevie Williams threw out an off-the-cuff personal opinion (probably supported by many caddies and players), someone ran with it, and now he’s in a bit of a bother.
There are eggshells crunching as I write because Steve’s an old friend and I’m not quite sure where to go with this.
There’s a mantra out here that goes like this: “Dogs chasing cars, pros putting for pars, and caddies who think they’re stars don’t last long.”
