The caddie/player bond is strong and has been well documented over the years. As caddies, we carry those relationships long after the bag leaves our shoulder. The fact that so many people, golfers and non-golfers alike, donated to lighten the financial hardship of the Bandon Caddies is a moment we will never forget.
Please continue to follow our updates, as we will be sharing stories about how your donations are helping the recipients navigate this moment. We hope each of you recognize the significance of stopping what you were doing in the moments before donating and altering your course to bring positive change in someone else’s life. That is a powerful moment and energy. Energy radiates outward, through and beyond. Your energy is still moving forward. It has inspired us to reach into our own lives and into our community. Thank you for being the change in us. The Greater Than Golf movement is harvesting the power of good from the game of golf. Thank you for being a part of it. Far and Sure, The Bandon Caddies.
