Many caddies have nicknames. I didn’t realize how many until I compiled this list. Sometimes you bring your nickname along with you, but mostly you are given one from one of your fellow caddies or a player. It may be descriptive, flattering, or derogatory. A few have more than one. See if you can guess what some of these nicknames represent.

I must say, I could not agree with you in 100%, but it’s just my opinion, which could be very wrong.
p.s. You have a very good template . Where did you find it?
I didn’t create any of them car jacks. They either have them when they come out or earn them.
The template sems to be no longer available at wordpress.com. It’s Contempt by Michael Heilemann.
Thanks for the website. I noticed that Shadow had past. Can you give any info about him? He was a good kid.
Good to hear from you Mookie. I posted a memorial to Shadow under the Additional Pages section. Check out “Shadow” Remembered. Make sure to peruse the comments. Very touching.
mookie hows it going, what u up to? i live in the pensacola area now. hope your doing good. charlie doing well 2 kids 17 15 liqour rep in oregon
Hey Tom, Happy New Year. Thanks for the update on you and Charlie. It’s going ok for me. I’ve been living for the past few years in South Florida with my wife and daughter (10). My wife informed me Dec 23 we’re (-7 1/2) and counting for the next munchkin. For grins, you can see my daughter on Youtube. Search “tricah” or go to Facebook and search “Trinidad Jun Cadavedo Harvey”. I’ll ask my wife to friend you and you can look at pics and keep in touch. My best to you, Charlie your families and our entire caddy family.
Chris Harvey (Mookie),
Not sure if you’d remember me, but we were on tour at the same time back in the ’80s (along with Charlie Thorpe). You gave me my first golf lessons, just wherever we happened to be standing — restaurants, hotel rooms, waiting for players … etc.
I recall that you had a great photo of you and Seve on a flight to South Africa. Post it if you can.
Your girl looks like she can play golf. Glad you are well.
Yep, I remember you. Sometimes mustache, played guitar and complained of sand in your pants after coming back from a late night trip to the beach with a girl friend. I remember…
I’ve looked for, but can’t find, the pictures of Seve. I still recall being paired with him in South Africa. He was amazing. I remember the 1991 World Cup in Rome, when Seve started hitting drivers on the range, the entire practice area of world class players stopped hitting to watch. He was a complete gentleman to me and that’s what I will always remember.
Speaking of memories, the article you did on Shadow’s passing was outstanding. Congratulations and thank you.
Good to hear from you, hope all is well.
Chris Harvey (Mookie)
Larry, didn’t see your name on any of the above lists. Did I miss it?
Not everyone has an alias Willie.
Moon Unit = Sue Groschelle
I was moved a great deal,when i heard about Jeff&BOBBY.Larry please keep up the great work.Thanks Ellie for letting me know about this website. your friend russ!!!!
Looking for an old lpga caddie named Jesse. He always used to say “It’s a beautyfull thing” Don’t remember his last name. Maybe it was Fulton.
If Jesse if ever took a breath, you had to check to make sure he was OK.
I used to caddie on the LPGA, I came from Oakmont and Naples National. I was called Pittsburgh Jason, and probably worse. I caddied for Kelli Kuehne, Eva Dahloff, Amy Read, Kate Golden, Mhairi McKay, Jill McGill, Cristie Kerr, Corinne Dibnah, Leslie Spalding and missed some cuts with some others. I was on tour from 1998-2000. Not long, but long enough. Hell, anyone need a caddie? I’m ready for more. I went rafting with Lori West and ended up becoming a raft guide instead.
I just read this site to see Shadow and Jerimiah are gone.Can someone fill me in on what happened.I am a former caddied and knew these guys pretty well.Thanks….NEEKO or Nick the number or Nick @ nite
NEEKO! Nice hearin’ from you.
Don’t know the details but I assume one too many Buds did Jeremiah in. Heard that from “Little Rick” a couple years ago. Shad died in a car accident September 4, 2008.
I have a tribute posted in the Additional Stuff section. Click on Shadow Remembered for the details.
BTW, don’t you still owe “The Nerd” a few bucks? 🙂 Just kiddin’. Take care.
Brad Krosnoff- “The Russian”, who caddied for Val Skinner and others back in the mid 80’s past away back in March 03. You can Google his name for details. I traveled and roomed with Bradley for a time back then. He was a memorable character and a good hearted man. I believe he could be added to your “no longer with us ” category. Thanks
I am looking for Patrick Swift. Anyone know where he is or how I can contact him? Golf.firstname.lastname@example.org
Heard he was living in Palm Springs but no details.
All I know is he was seen last year at the Dinah looking for a job that week, other than that I cant help, sorry thats all I got.
You forgot Sports Page Tim Ramstead
Hi- I was friends with Terry Engleman (Whole Wheat 😀) and was so shocked to hear of his passing. Can anyone tell me what happened?
I would greatly appreciate it.
