    I'm caddying for Alex Cejka this week! Super pumped, went out for a practice round today with him. Should be an interesting couple of days



    Also, potentially going to caddie for an AM tomorrow in either Tiger or Rickies group!



    I'll try to take some pics and give you guys the low down on what goes on during my week




    that's sweet see if u can take a push cart? A friend wants to know......

    I think Tiger has a really good chance here, and a pretty good chance at Carnoustie




    he misses the cut here if he doesnt putt well....these greens are very tough to read, very subtle breaks.



    he wont have to hit driver all that much so if he finds the fairways he's off to a good start

    Man, talk about a weak field. Beau Hossler for the win.
  • If Tiger isn't contending on the weekend against this field...

    I’m caddying for Alex Cejka this week!




    Very cool. That's inside the ropes action. How the heck did this come about?

    I work at the course as a caddie and he originally needed someone for today’s practice round



    His wife was going to caddie this week but today he said the course is a bit too hilly for her so once I heard that I didn’t hesitate to say that I’d do it



    So did the practice round today, pretty chill day tomorrow and then we’re first off on Thursday morning

    ha! i just want to make the cut...was talking about the Greenbrier but his wife is going to caddy for him next week since the course is flat.



    i think he takes a lot of local guys because a buddy of mine who caddies at Scottsdale said he took a local there too (his brother was caddying for him for most of this season but had to go back to Germany because he plays pro hockey there)

    I got him in my DK picks this week, rooting for you guys to hit a top ten! Ask him about why he uses a round CP2 iron grip on his putter. He seems like a chill dude. Have a blast out there this week!

    It's a show. Traffic is already bad here. Add in the tournament, it's going to be a worse nightmare. If he makes the cut, the weekend is going to be ugly bad. Not even normal bad.

    Did Nicklaus always have the same caddy? I know his son came in later in his career but prior to that?

    Angelo Argea (November 7, 1929 – October 10, 2005) was best known as the caddie for Jack Nicklaus.

    Argea was born in Greece. He and Nicklaus first met at the Palm Springs Golf Classic in 1963, when Argea signed up to caddie for him. Argea continued to caddie for Nicklaus for over 20 years. During this time, he was on the bag for 44 of Nicklaus' 70 PGA Tour wins (that tally would later be revised to 73 when British Open wins were added to PGA Tour win records). Argea was easily recognizable by his gray afro. Of Argea, Nicklaus has remarked, "Essentially, he has been retired since he was twenty-one."[1]

    A golfer once noticed that Argea didn't read greens, step off the yardage or select clubs, so he asked Argea, "What exactly do you do for Jack?" Argea replied, "He asked me to do two things. When he's not playing well, one, remind him that he's the best golfer out there. And two, that there's plenty of holes left."

    "Angelo was known for his ... gray afro, but he should also be known for being an excellent caddie," Nicklaus said.
