A legendary player in the game! Yes, we are referring to none other than Tiger Woods, who has received countless honors throughout his career. In addition, he recovered from the injury and the procedures that followed, which prevented him from participating in the sport. It seems, though, that the 15-time major champion will shortly give up the game. It was Joe LaCava who made this statement, not us.

The bagman took over as caddy for Patrick Cantlay, 31, after his former boss took a break from the match. Taking Woods as an example, LaCava mentioned in an interview that he spoke with the 48-year-old a few years ago, but he also hinted that Woods might not have much time left in his professional career.

The bagman disclosed in his interview on a Hurrdat Sports episode of Quiet Please how the 15-time major champion had been pushing him to hunt for job “like Fred [Couples] did at the end of his career” for a few years. He related how the athlete informed him that he could play with someone else if the chance arose, adding, “I don’t know how much…when… how often I’m gonna play.”

The caddy said that he “wanted to get back in the game” after a few years of “not doing a whole lot,” even if at first he declined since he was happy with way Woods treated him. The looper continued by noting the limitations of immobility. Enter Cantlay, who, rather unexpectedly, asked the baggie if he would be “interested in caddying” for him “full-time on the tour.” The baggie responded positively, calling the player “good, young, and healthy.”

Working with the 82X PGA Tour winner for more than 12 years, the 69-year-old has helped him win 11 times, including a major in 2019. Even though they had a great relationship, Mr. T’s inability to play professionally, the accident, and the break forced LaCava to say yes to a more competitive player. demonstrates how much past his peak the golfer is.

The 31-year-old’s new partnership did gain notoriety, particularly following the esteemed Ryder Cup. The American then engaged in a brief altercation with the European team’s Rory McIlroy.

Cantlay birdied the 18th hole in the Saturday Four-balls versus McIlroy and Matt Fitzpatrick, which prompted LaCava to wave his hat. But he did so as he crossed the putt line that the Northern Irishman was getting set to make.

The rest is, well, history. A lot has happened in the last few months, including a struggle on the course and a furious altercation in the parking lot that ended with McIlroy calling Cantlay a “d**k” before changing his mind. Who would have guessed that so much drama would arise subtly from Woods breaking up with his caddie?
