The caddie often talks out exactly how the client might hit the next shot because positive visualization can be the difference between a birdie and a bogey. Also, they are often skilled enough to discuss slight swing corrections that can make the golfer aware of something they did not even realize they were doing.
Caddies who carry the rank of “Pro” are the most experienced and generally considered the best. “Pro” caddies are generally given the privilege of caddying in important club tournaments (High Profile Projects). Some are even assigned the title of “Senior Honor”, a rank reserved for an elite number of caddies possessing the highest knowledge of the game.
The perspective that sets good caddies a part from the great ones is that caddies are always in service to the client and must make them feel very comfortable that their knowledge and experience is reliable and offers great value.
If you think about it, it is amazing how similar the Caddie and Consulting professions really are. You can utilize your Caddie and Consultant as just a bag carrier, but as you can see they are capable of so much more. And the great ones can really help elevate your game!
