19th Hole

A friend is looping for Rory McIlroy for now (and he’s the betting favorite to keep the job)



Rory McIlroy’s longtime friend Harry Diamond will carry the Ulsterman’s bag at this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and next week’s PGA Championship, per a report in The Telegraph.

Diamond does have experience on Rory’s bag, looping for him as recently as the 2014 Dunhill Links Championship. And while we haven’t received official word on the Rory-J.P. split, The Telegraph suggests Fitzgerald may have mis-clubbed his boss on the 10th hole during the final round of The Open.

Of course, McIlroy also credited the looper’s pep talk with inspiring his opening-round rebound after a rough start.

If you want to take a guess as to who Rory’s next permanent caddie will be (or whether the Diamond could stay on the bag full-time), why not place a wager? Paddy Power is offering odds on who McIlroy’s next permanent bag carrier will be.

Romeo from “Tin Cup” is an attractive play at 500-1…

8/13       Harry Diamond
9/4         Billy Foster (Lee Westwood’s caddie) 
9/2         Jim ‘Bones’ MacKay
7/1         Joe LaCava
10/1       Michael Doran
14/1       Steve Williams
14/1       Ricky Elliott
16/1       Gareth Lord
16/1       Ted Scott
16/1       Colin Byrne
20/1       Mike ‘Fluff’ Cowan
40/1       Fanny Sunesson
100/1     John Rathouz
100/1     Niall Horan
300/1     Gerry McIlroy
300/1     Tiger Woods
500/1     Romeo from ‘Tin Cup’

    I get it it’s the caddies fault if the player hits a bad shot. And only the caddie knows how far he’s going to hit it. Give me a break this young man had better grow up better yet get his wife to caddie.
