This Caveman happened to overhear an interesting discussion in the parking log at my favorite muni over the weekend regarding caddies on the pro tour, with one guy making his case for doing away with them during competition.
“If golf is truly an individual sport,” he said, “Why should players get the benefit of a bellhop, equipment manager, swing coach, psychologist, and human rangefinder at their side?” Golfers could still consult with caddies leading up to and between rounds at tournaments, but would have to carry their own clubs and be absolutely alone during play. No help picking shots and clubs, or reading the green and wind.
What do you think? Keep ’em or can ’em, and why?
