Aussie could be Tiger’s next caddie
An Aussie caddie, Shane Joel, is the latest favourite to become Tiger Woods’ bag man, it was reported Friday.
An Australian caddie, Shane Joel, is the latest favourite to become Tiger Woods’ bag man, it was reported on Friday by the Australian website, WA.com.au
The report said that Joel, who has been caddying for Mark O’Meara, one of Woods’s oldest golfing buddies, for seven years, was recently spotted deep in conversation with the 13-time major winner.
It is understood that O’Meara had made the suggestion to Woods that Joel would be a first-class replacement for Steve Williams, the New Zealand caddie Woods recently split up with after a 12-year relationship that harvested more than 70 victories world-wide, 13 of them in Major championships.
At last week’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone and at the Atlanta Athletic Club this week where Woods is playing in the 93rd PGA Championship, he has been using a business associate, Bryan Bell, the CEO of his golf design company, as a temporary caddy but there has never been any intention of them working like this on a permanent basis.
Before he teed off in Thursday’s first round, Woods is reported to have confirmed that Joel was on his short list, but made no further comment.
