@Foursum Golf , maybe he (the winner) will see you as his good luck.. Has he asked you to caddie any more?
No problem at all! He hasn't asked me to caddie any more. He has a full time guy he regularly travels with. He had an family event and had to miss that week though. No complaints here!

Absolutely. Those guys are GOOD.

My question and I hope you don't mind - are there any contractual agreements for example regarding you speaking about your experience with him on this forum or other blogs and such? I mean did you discuss with him first that you are going to do your blog and post in forums, or is it a non issue.. I ask because I don't see many caddies talking about their experiences really and it is a shame because I think we can learn so much!
I don't think there are official contractual agreements but can't say for sure. I told him that I was going to write about my experiences and he was cool with it. He was a great guy.

When you have a chance, I wonder if you could expand on this a litle bit:
Like, what were the "couple of things he likes a caddy to do?" Did he consult you on strategy ever? Or did you just carry the clubs and rake the bunkers?
This sounds like something that would be a lot of fun ... I wonder what the closest web.com tournament is to me?
Thanks! He wanted me to always place his bag to the right of his ball. He didn't want to go looking for his bag after he nailed down a yardage. He wanted me to follow him onto the green so I could clean his ball after he marked it. Just things like that.
He did most of his own work in terms of reading putts and getting yardages. He would ask me what lines to take off the tee and where certain greens fell off though. He knew I knew the course well.

This is almost as good as a Tour Pro coming on here. I'm always interested in how the caddie feels after a win like this.
How much do you help him? Do you just give yardages? Do you suggest which clubs? Do you help read putts?
Are you like Phil and Bones? or like Bubba and his caddie, getting yelled at all the time. LOL
Ha! I'd say we were like Phil and Bones. See answer above in regards to your question about the work I did. I should also add I take credit for keeping him relaxed between shots! He was a great guy. We got along well.
