Caddying - The Story
From the age of ten I spent all my weekends caddying at my home club of Paraparaumu Beach. My days would often include 36 holes of caddying and practising until dark myself. Despite getting to as low as a two handicap by the age of thirteen I found myself enjoying caddying more than playing.

In 1976 my Father arranged for me to caddy for Australian great Peter Thomson in the New Zealand Open, which was held at Wellington Golf Club. Peter finished third and was amazed at my skill level as a Caddy despite being only thirteen years old. From that week on I knew I wanted to be a professional golf caddy. I continued to caddy for Peter when he played in New Zealand and I would travel to Australia in the school holidays to caddy in some tournaments. During my trips to Australia I would quiz as many caddies as I could to learn what the World of Professional Caddying involved.

Celebrating the 2013 US Masters winWith my savings from Caddying at Paraparaumu I headed to the European tour in 1979 and began my career as a caddy. From 1979 to 1988 I caddied on the European tour, Asian tour, Japanese tour and Australasian tour. During this time I caddied for Australian pros Mike Clayton, Terry Gale and Ian Baker-Finch. It was during this time I met Greg Norman and from 1982 I caddied for Greg in all his Australian and Asian events as well as some European events. In 1988 I moved to the United States and would work full time for Greg. Sadly this arrangement despite great success would only last midway through 1989.

Fortunately I joined Ray Floyd immediately after and would enjoy ten great years with Raymond. During the 1999 Doral Open I received a phone call from Tiger Woods enquiring whether I would be interested in caddying for him. Whilst it was an easy decision to join Tiger it was a difficult one to leave Raymond who was like a Father to me.

From 1999 to mid 2011 I was privileged to have one of the best jobs in golf caddying for one of the greatest players of all time. Together Tiger and I won 84 tournaments around the world including 13 major championships. Tiger and I parted ways mid way through 2011 and I immediately joined Adam Scott. Having followed Adam on tour since his pro debut it was a great opportunity to caddy for another Australian hoping to follow in Greg Normans footsteps.
