Who’s Your Caddie? Me.

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Dear Tiger, I see that you parted ways with caddie Steve Williams after 12 years, and unless you plan on becoming the only player on the PGA Tour to lug his own clubs around you're going to need someone on the bag. Look no further. I have over 7 years of excellent looping ...
