The Squeaky Shoe Gets The Boot

A group of ten from the Dallas area stopped by last Thursday for a three days of play. The first day was a practice round and no caddies were requested. Then they got down to business playing in fivesomes assisted by forecaddies.

Tex and I each had a group with the head honcho under Tex’s supervision. They played from the middle tees with my group one forward from the senior yardage.

All seemed well but for some reason the soles on Tex’s shoes emitted an annoying squeak with every step which must have put a burr under the saddle of Mr. Big.

Yesterday, we all gathered on the first tee before starting but a possible caddie switch was requested. First, a question had to be answered which was aimed in my direction. “Do your shoes squeak?” I was asked. “No.” was my reply and the exchange was made.

After we finished, our started asked if my performance was satisfactory compared to old squeaky shoes. With the previous day’s annoyance fresh in his mind, the answer was definitive.“Larry was ten times better than Tex.” he said.

Basically I did very little. Just regular caddie duties along with reading a few greens. Nothing special. But I guess in this case, silence was indeed golden.


Round 3 of the Blue Bay LPGA will resume tomorrow morning (Monday, October 27, 2014) at 8.30am.

    Wonder how the GREATS would have fared ( Jack, Tom, Arnold, Johnny, Lee) if all this technology was around back then …

      It may not be what you think. The greats of the game may not have been separated from the rest of the pack by such a large margin given that everyone would have had access to the technology. Their ability and work ethic is what set them apart.

      Also, courses were set-up according to the standards at the time. It would have been totally different.

        Makes sense. But still would have been nice to see Jack N, in his golfing prime, ,hit a hi-tech golf ball with a driver head the size of a toaster … I recall Norman was still hitting blades, in the 80’s , when all the guys were moving to cavity back. He should something about working the ball and tradition. Of course when Jack N won the 86 masters, I went out and got a huge head putter like his. Didn’t work. So SKILL is involved to prove your point~~!!
