Tiger has finally made a choice for his new caddie, making the announcement on his website. After abruptly firing Steve Williams on July 20 after 13 years of loyal service, Tiger has played with several caddies, most recently Dustin Johnson.
On Sept. 25, Tiger selected Fred Couples’ long-time caddie, Joe LaCava, to be his partner. According to Tiger’s website, LaCava originally approached Woods for the position, one of many interested applicants. LaCava will be out with Woods for the first time starting Oct. 6 at the Frys.com Open.
Excited to be working with Tiger, LaCava commented: “I contacted Tiger and Mark (Steinberg, Wood’s agent) because this is a unique opportunity to be part of something very special. Tiger and I have been friends for a very long time, and I know what he can do.”
