The difference between playing golf and golfing
Caddie (Former Employee) – Oakmont, PA – January 22, 2017
My experience as a caddie started at Oakmont Country Club shortly after getting out of the Military where I quickly learned the difference between playing golf and golfing. I have to say my biggest thrill was carrying Jason Day’s bag at Oakmont when he was just starting his career at the ripe age of 18 years old. I’ll never forget the moment; the caddie master called me to the desk and said, “We got you a real hot shot for you today, a kid from Australia.” At first I thought to myself, great another know it all rich kid. He was fearless and asked about the putting greens before we even got to the first tee box. Shortly after his first tee shot as we walked down the first fairway I asked him” So what’s the deal you don’t like to surf or can’t swim or something?” He quickly replied,” Nah, I just like to golf.” By the end of the round I thought to myself I think I just might have caddied for the next number one golfer in the world and said,” sign him up!”
