Since 2011, caddy Joe LaCava, who has been carrying Tiger Woods (USA)’s bag and is better known to golf fans than most players, has started a ‘part-time job’.
On the 20th (Korean time) when the news of Woods’ ankle surgery was announced, La Cava served as temporary caddy for Steve Stricker (USA) and played a practice round at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, Louisiana, where the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Zurich Classic is held. . Stricker, who mainly plays in the PGA Tour Champions, a senior stage, and occasionally participates in regular tour competitions, teamed up with Jack Johnson (USA) in this tournament, which is held as a ‘two-person team’ team game.
Unlike other caddies who are paid for each tournament, La Cava, who has an annual salary contract, rarely carries other players’ bags when Woods is resting due to injury, but often caddies with Woods’ permission when players close to Woods request. Again, it seems that the friendship between Stricker and Woods played a big role.
Stricker said,스포츠토토 “In fact, I asked Lacava’s son to medal the bag first, but he refused, saying he was going to be a caddy at the Korn Ferry Tour.” said.
