Former caddie and current NBC/Golf Channel broadcaster John Wood joins us to answer basically any question you could ever throw at a caddie, including hirings/firings, caddie pay, travel arrangements, best and worst advice he's given, and funny things he's heard tour pros complain about.

Best of luck to Kamaiu this week at Pebble!

To your point about the equipment being too strong for the pros. The USGA should make the pros use equipment that doesnt go as far, just as MLB uses wooden bats. Keeps it fun for those up and coming, and challenges the best in the game properly.

Yer boýs took a hell of a beating. Ye ve been building up all year for a joyous victory. And got whipped! Time ye faced up that us tour events are set up too easy and that its not about as far as u hit it. Journeymen is an insult. Stop thinking small picture golf. As journalists you should view the europeans with more respect. ye ve won 1 in 5!! .
