I had a friend of mine caddying for me instead of my regular caddie .
When you're out there playing, you have to play the role of the caddie as well as the golfer to make sure you make the smart play.
In French the word cadet is pronounced ‘ca-day’ but in English the golfer's assistant became a caddie .
But as he then reached for a club from his caddie , he also backed into a branch and snapped it off.
‘The good caddie carries much more than the weight of the golfer's clubs in his back, that's for sure,’ he said.
In practice rounds, my caddie , Greg, and I work on my short game with a baseball glove.
When my putt ended up a foot outside the hole, the caddie said drolly, ‘I said a golf ball, not a soccer ball!’
Of all the things my caddie does, keeping my club grips clean and dry might be the most important.
He would later become a caddie and an assistant at the club.
The caddie is, effectively, the professional golfers' sidekick.
