How to Become a PGA Tour Caddy

By Doug Gambardella

The caddy is a golfer's most important asset aside from his clubs. Not only does the caddy carry the golfer's clubs, he offers advice and an objective view that can be invaluable to a golfer's game. Becoming a professional caddy for the PGA Tour requires hard work and determination but can be a lucrative and rewarding career.

Instructions

Study the game of golf. Read as much as you can on the rules and how to play. Caddies need to be thoroughly versed in all aspects of golf.
Step 2
Frequent your local country club. Make connections with the people who work and play there. Learn as much as you can and network.
Step 3
Work as a caddy at your local country club. Learn the basics of caddying, hone your skills and knowledge, and increase your network of connections.
