Adam Scott is looking for a caddy!
If you ever dreamed of carrying a bag for one of the great golf players currently in the world then you will do no better than applying for the job of caddying for Adam Scott. Mind you… you will have to be up there in the top echelons of the caddying world as at least 100 caddies have already applied for the position!
The job became available when Steve Williams, who previously worked for Tiger Woods, decided he wanted to cut back on the number of tournaments he caddied in, which did not fit with Scott’s requirements. Adam Scott is probably the most sought after bag after Rory McIlroy!
Scott is in no hurry…. he will employ a couple of different people for the next couple of tournaments where he will try the ‘fit’ and see how each caddy’s personality fits in with his. As he says “You can be the best player and do all the right things, but there is only one other person who can influence you on the golf course and that is the caddie. Whatever he says, whatever comes out of his mouth or doesn’t come out of his mouth can influence you, so it’s an extremely important role when you play at this level.”
Adam Scott’s new caddy could expect to earn around $500,000 at the current winnings total… not too shabby for a years work!
Adam was close to winning The Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, England a couple of years ago – he came second to Ernie Els. Royal Lytham is a great golf course…. if you want to know more click here!
