VIDEO: Ben Hogan Gets Untimely Caddie Advice

CADDIES HAVE BEEN IN THE NEWS a lot lately. Well, one in particular. Some caddies say the wrong thing. Some speak up at the wrong time. As I discovered, even the great Ben Hogan dealt with unsolicited and untimely caddie advice.

This caddie (for another player) dropped out of a tree to help Hogan with a pitch shot.

“This is a very fast green, Mr. Hogan. And you’re going to need a lot of backspin, so I suggest you use your wedge.”

“Well, if you don’t mind, I’ll use the 9-iron,” said Hogan.

“I just thought I’d mention it.”

Then, of course, Hogan flubs the pitch. Stupid caddie.
