One of the stars of Pro Golf wins a tournament in Mexico. His regular caddie could not make the loop for this tourney, so Kuchar hired a local caddie.
Kuchar took home nearly $1.3 million in winnings, but paid his fill-in caddie only $5000…… Kuch claimed that is what was agreed to in advance……It is customary to pay your caddie in the range of 8-10% of your winnings.
Kuch musta felt the heat…….Friday, he finally ponied up $50K for his caddy and an undisclosed “donation to philantropic “local causes”
“I certainly don’t lose sleep over this……..This is something that I’m quite happy with, and I was really happy for him to have a great week and make a good sum of money. Making $5,000 is a great week.”Matt Kuchar
