Jordan Spieth’s Caddie Made More Prizemoney Than Tiger Woods This Year

Jordan Spieth absolutely destroyed the PGA Tour this year, winning two majors and the Tour Championship to shatter the previous 1-year earnings record with a cool USD$22 million in winnings to his name.

Let’s just say life is pretty good for the 22-year old, and it’s not too bad for his caddie Michael Greller either.

A caddie typically receives 5% of a player’s winnings for making the cut, 7% for finishing in the top 10 and 10% for a win, meaning that Greller made about $2.1m holding the bag for Spieth this season, according to Golf Magazine.



To put this into perspective, if Greller were a PGA Tour player he would have finished 39th on the money list this year; just behind Phil Mickelson, ahead of other greats like Adam Scott ($1.3m) and Ian Poulter ($1.7m), and way way ahead of one Tiger Woods who made a paltry $448,000 this year.

If you love golf but are no good, can I highly suggest becoming a caddie.
