PGA TOUR CADDIE SAGA HOTS UP THE tension between the PGA Tour and the caddies working on that Tour continues to grow, after caddies were forced to huddle in a metal tent during the severe storm that suspended play at the Honda Classic. While players, fans and officials headed for the clubhouse, caddies were directed to alternative accommodations because they do not have clubhouse access during PGA Tour events. The shelter caddies were offered was no more than a three-sided shipping container with an outside area covered with tables and chairs. With torrential rain and gale force winds, it provided no shelter at all for the loopers. South Australia’s Steve Catlin, who caddies for American Robert Streb, and Brandt Snedeker’s loop, Scott Vail, led a fierce Twitter attack outlining the treatment caddies are receiving from the PGA Tour. “Sadly it will take a caddie to get struck by lightning and dying before the PGA tour realises that we need indoor shelter during storms,” Vail tweeted. Shelter during storms is one of many issues the Association of Professional Tour Caddies (APTC) has been fighting the PGA Tour over. A collection of APTC members filed a $50 million lawsuit against the PGA Tour last month, alleging caddies are "treated as second-class participants in the game." _______________________________ QUAIL HOLLOW TO HOST CUP The PGA Tour has announced that Quail Hollow Golf Club will host the 2021 Presidents Cup. It will be the first time the event has been played in the south-eastern United States in what will be its 27-year history in 2021. The Quail Hollow Club, in Charlotte North Carolina, will be the fifth golf course in the United States to host the competition, joining Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Prince William County, Virginia, (1994, 1996, 2000, 2005), TPC Harding Park in San Francisco, California, (2009, 2025); Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio (2013); and Liberty National, Jersey City, New Jersey (2017). The Presidents Cup 2021 will take place September 30-October 3. This year’s Cup will be played at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon City, Korea, from October 6 to 11.
