I understand the discretionary nature of it all, but is it common practice to tip more for caddies on public holidays, eg Christmas day?

They are away from their families on a holiday so that we can enjoy their employer’s goods and services. I’d say it is appropriate to be a little heavy handed if deserved.

I always ask myself a simple question. Will I miss the tip more than it will mean to someone helping me enjoy life. The answer always makes it easy to be generous

I’m absolutely the same way. Glad you said that.
