The job of a caddie is multifaceted. One must be a coach, a counselor, a friend, and a motivational speaker, and sometimes the bad guy. Then there’s the stuff they don’t predict but can come up from time to time. Like clearing out some pesky geese when you’re player is trying to win a tournament down the stretch.
Here’s Patrick Reed’s caddie, Kessler Karain, making sure nothing crazy happened as the tournament leader stared down his third shot on the par-5 13th hole.
Reed pared the hole, but, obviously, it was a team effort. The geese could not be reached for comment but were seen in the same area again because, hey, they were there first.
