As they say, all great things must come to an end. We saw it first with Tiger and his career and now we see it with Phil and Bones after what has been an incredibly successful relationship. After 25 years the long time caddie will no longer carry the bag for Phil.
Mickelson won 42 times on the PGA Tour, including five majors, with Bones to his side. Their last victory together was the 2013 British Open.
Going forward it sounds like Phil’s brother, Tim, will be his new caddie, in a move that I’m sure has been debated over Holiday family dinners for many years. His poor ass brother witnessed all the easy money Bones pulled and desperately wanted a piece of the pie. It appears years of nagging Phil finally paid off… Don’t ever give up. Grind them down. This is a perfect example.
PS: I wonder if Phil, Bones, and their wives ever took part in any swinging? It’s long been rumored that Phil enjoys that lifestyle. Per Wikipedia: Mackay lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with his wife, Jen (Olsen) — a friend of Phil Mickelson’s wife, Amy, who was introduced to Mackay by the Mickelsons – HMMM.
Must have been so awkward every holiday.
