June 7 Release: 'LOOPERS: The Caddie's Long Walk,' Narrated by Bill Murray

GRAVITAS VENTURES WILL RELEASE the golf documentary LOOPERS: THE CADDIE'S LONG WALK in theaters on June 7th. The film is narrated by actor and former caddie Bill Murray (Ghostbusters, Lost in Translation) and was directed by Jason Baffa.

The film includes interviews with World Golf Hall of Famers Nick Faldo, Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Lee Trevino, Curtis Strange and former Masters Tournament and U.S. Open champion Fuzzy Zoeller.

Professional caddies who participated in the film include Steve Williams (Tiger Woods' former caddie), Carl Jackson (Crenshaw), Fanny Sunesson (Faldo), Pete Bender (Greg Norman and others), Michael Greller (Jordan Spieth) and Jariah "Jerry" Beard (Zoeller at the 1979 Masters). Longtime golf journalists Rick Reilly, Michael Collins and Ward Clayton are also interviewed.

Centuries old and enjoyed by tens of millions of people worldwide, golf is seen by many as more than a sport. Yet what do we know about the other person on the course? The man or woman behind the player carrying the bag.

In a narrative never before covered in any feature length documentary, LOOPERS: THE CADDIE'S LONG WALK explores the incredible personal bond that a golfer and a caddie develop through hours of time together.
