The LPGA is going to allow the option of a player playing without a caddie:
No caddies? Now an option for LPGA players
Players will be allowed to carry their own bags for the rest of the 2020 season, if they so choose.
LPGA caddie: 'Quite shocked' when caddie option announced; fearful for future
With LPGA caddies optional for the rest of the year, how many players will actually choose to carry their own bags? One caddie believes the option will be abused.
I hadn’t quite thought about it, but it never occurred to me that a caddie was “required,” that playing without a caddie would require permission or exemption from the LPGA. If so, I’m assuming that the PGA Tour has a similar requirement.
Not anymore, no.
I used to swap out my 3w for my mini driver when I know there is a course that calls for it, but my 3w and I are on speaking terms again so I haven’t done that in a while.
I also have a 4h I used to play instead of my 4i, but my 4h tends to hook and I have no problem with the launch angle on my new 4i.
