PGA Tour caddie quits in mid-round, replaced by woman in dress, flip-flops

It generally is not news, given the frequency with which it happens, when a tour player fires a caddie. But when a caddie quits on a tour player? And in mid-round? Now that’s news.

It happened on Saturday at the PGA Tour’s Barracuda Championship (formerly known as the Reno-Tahoe Open), when Michael Lawson, who has caddied for Brian Stuard for three years, “dropped the bag and walked off the course,” the Reno Gazette-Journal’s Dan Hinxman reported.

Lawson and Stuard apparently were arguing for several holes before Lawson suddenly quit on the 12th hole. A woman in the gallery, Christy Atencio, wearing a dress and flip-flops, stepped up to carry Stuard’s bag for the final six holes. Chad Munoz, an assistant pro at Montreux Golf and Country Club, caddied for Stuard on Sunday.

That would be really cool to caddy for a few holes for a tour player.  It would be especially cool if he played decent for those few holes and asked you back for the following day.:-P

 

The only thing that might be cooler than that would be if he just said "eff it, I'll carry my own dang bag!!" for the last few holes.
