British Open

That was one impressive back nine. I was waiting for his signature "Oh No" but it never came.

Wow....even though I know the results...I sure am glad they are replaying it at a reasonable time. Looks like Westwood just fell apart.

Vic, you don't like getting up at 2 for golf? I didn't have to get up till 3 but I loved every minute of it.

One thing I'm really curious about is how much his caddy, Bones, has made all these years. I'd guess he has a really nice house and maybe a BMW in the driveway.

Whatever, I'm just glad I didn't hear the "oh no" again.

Well....according to an old article I saw...Mackay made about $450K way back in 2006. According to a statement around that time from the PGA "caddies are paid on the basis of how well their player performs: a base salary of $1,000 a week plus 5% of the tournament purse, 7% of a top 10 and 10% for a victory."

Not bad for 6 months work. Oh...and if the percentages are correct...he made about $145K this past weekend.

That is just the minimums. The long time personal caddies also get a little since the golfer thinks they are worth the money. Base salaries can be higher and there are always bonuses.

Some pros do use the local professional club caddies that know the courses better, but are not familiar with the individual golfer's abilities.

No wonder he was crying. I wouldn't doubt Phil probably pays him a couple million a year considering all he makes from endorsements and stuff. Not a bad way to make a living.
