What is your greatest Golf memory?

What is your greatest memory as a caddie?
Caddying for John Merrick in the '09 Masters. Both of our first times and finishing 6th. Watching him and Geoff Ogilvy birdie 13,14, 15,16 on Sunday.

My dad, who is not a golf fan was there to share the entire experience with me. I remember going to church with him on that Easter Sunday morning.

Caddying for Seamus Power of Ireland in the Olympics in Rio was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He played great and had a chance to medal on Sunday. Being part of golf's debut and being around all the athletes from all over the world and seeing other events. There is no other way I'd be at the Olympics if it weren't for caddying!!

What is the best part about being a caddie?
Being inside the ropes with the best golfers in the world competing and helping my player to accomplish their goals.
