PGA Tour caddie shows off mighty impressive scorecard after birdie binge

As the retired PGA Tour slogan goes, “These guys are good.” But when it comes to those caddying for the world’s best golfers, a slightly different saying typically applies: “These guys are also good.”

As we’ve seen through the years with guys like Damon Green and Paul Tesori, many loopers remain high-level golfers after abandoning their own playing dreams to caddie for others. Add Brent Henley to that list.

The younger brother of Kip Henley, a former mini-tour player and “Big Break” winner turned caddie, has worked for the likes of Woody Austin, Robert Garrigus, John Mallinger, and Garrett Willis.
