STORY COVER THE ROLE OF CADDIES IN PROFESSIONAL GOLF HAS ARGUABLY EVOLVED AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER ASPECT OF THE GAME AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL. THE MODERN LOOPER MUST CARRY AND CLEAN CLUBS, MEASURE YARDAGES, HELP WITH CLUB SELECTIONS, READ GREENS AS WELL AS FILLING THE ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGIST AND EVEN SECURITY GUARD. LISTED HERE ARE THE 10 MOST SUCCESSFUL CADDIES WHO HAVE GUIDED THEIR PLAYERS TO MORE MEN’S MAJOR CHAMPIONSHIP WINS THAN ANYONE ELSE. 10. J.P. FITZGERALD Despite both having four major titles to their name, Rory McIlroy’s long-time bagman gets the 10th place ahead of Arnold Palmer’s Augusta National regular Nathaniel ‘Iron Man’ Avery for his larger body of work that includes another 18 victories. Fitzgerald worked for Paul McGinley and Ernie Els among others before striking gold by securing the job on McIlroy’s bag in 2008. The two Irishmen appeared set for a long and successful career before a form slump in 2017 saw Fitzgerald replaced with McIlroy’s best friend Harry Diamond. WORDS BY JIMMY EMANUEL
