So nice, they named 'em twice. Regardless if you spell it with a “y” or an “ie”, the story remains the same.
EX: Showing up, keeping up, and shutting up are unwritten caddy rules which were made to be broken.
What is Caddying?
To caddie is to slug or chase someone’s clubs around a golf course while doing the backbreaking work no player cares to do.
It is an important part of golf's heritage of master and slave.
While it can be easy under the table cash for the keen and clever, it will be a toothless dead-end job for those refusing to read the colorful graffiti on the caddieyard wall.
What are the merits of Caddying?
Caddying gives you the opportunity to meet successful and influential people, many of whom are boring and unhappy. To work for such folk for even 3 to 4 hours will be complete torture, a lesson in life of who never to take crap from or agree to work for again.
Potentially young loopers can earn caddie scholarships although this may be at the cost of their adolescent innocence.
The caddy is as old as the game of golf itself.
Caddying is a part of golf's love of servitude, "the way golf servants were to be enslaved".
Catching loops helps adolescent kids learn many games - an opportunity for young people to get hip to the real world's lovely aspects of classism, racism, cronyism, nepotism, and the gulag police state.
Isn’t the Caddieyard all but dead?
Almost, but it is the resurgence of the caddieyard that is the only hope for golf to be charismatic again.
History proves the most memorable golfers with cool swings and personality got their start in scummy caddieyards the world over. Visit CaddieDigest's Caddy Shack of Fame page for undeniable evidence of why loopers do it best.
Sorry Dubs… you’ll never be in this club.
