SAN MARTIN, Calif. (AP) - Tiger Woods offered Joe LaCava the job as his caddie. LaCava said the decision was simple.
"He's Tiger Woods," the new caddie said Wednesday.
LaCava spent most of his 25 years on the PGA Tour working for Fred Couples, who used to draw the biggest crowds during the peak of his career in the 1990s. LaCava also has been around Woods during practice rounds with Couples.
This is the third full-time caddie Woods has employed in his 15 years on the PGA Tour. LaCava had been working for Dustin Johnson, leaving him after the FedEx Cup playoffs.
