Tiger’s Caddie, Joe LaCava, had a quick and interesting chat with the guys over at Caddie World earlier today leading up to the start of tomorrow’s The Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide. After a five-month layoff, Tiger and LaCava are back at it this week in Ohio.
Here’s a quick history on LaCava. He’s been on Tiger’s bag since 2011. Tiger and Joe linked up after TW split with longtime caddie Stevie Williams. LaCava came up on the bag of Fred Couples, who is Tiger’s boy, in the 1990s. Joey and Tiger share a special bond. If you don’t know anything about him, the brief interview below should let you know how awesome he is.
What an absolute gem this guy is. Would LOVE to throw a few back with him. He probably has some awesome stories. Just crushing Netflix and playing golf. Now he’s back on the bag for the GOAT. Fuck all. What a statement. Joe LaCava DGAF.
I might have to mess around power rank some of the caddies on Tour. Spoiler Alert: Joey’s in the top spot!
After a little research, I found that not only is there a Caddie Hall of Fame, but Joe is in it. He’s caddied for Fred Couples, Dustin Johnson, Davis Love III, Tiger and Justin Leonard. What an eclectic group of personalities that is.
