VIDEO: Mickelson's Bag Man on Caddying Basics and More
By VICE Sports
VICE Sports' Fernando Perez had the chance to meet with Jim "Bones" Mackay, Phil Mickelson's caddie for the last two and a half decades. Mackay, who has been a significant part of one of the era's top golfers, gives his unique perspective on Phil's career.
Perez had a chance to play a quick round with "Bones" in Arizona and learns the technical side of the business from the caddy. During their time on the course, Bones shows Perez the basics of caddying, including how to not put anything negative in a golfer's head.
Bones also recounts the time when Phil was starving at the 1995 U.S. Open that still haunts him and tells what it was like being next to Mickelson when he won his first Masters in 2004.
