'Think like a Caddie, Play like a Pro' book a worthy look at golf's underappreciated bagmen
I love the title of James Bartlett’s new book, “Think like a Caddie, Play like a Pro.”
I guess I never really looked at golf like that, but I should. Caddies are analyzing yardages and wind directions and reading putts. They’re giving their player the best opportunity to score well. Maybe if I thought more like a caddie I wouldn’t make so many idiotic mistakes in decisions to pull clubs or try certain shots.
This book shares inside tips and advice from some of the big name caddies – think Steve Williams (jerk) and Jim “Bones” Mackay (great). What do caddies hate? Yep, that’s an easy one: Heavy, clunky bags and golfers who are rude to the game or their hired hands. It even details the history of the Caddie Hall of Fame (who knew there was one?).
The layout is crisp with its 50 color photos. Published by Seller’s Publishing last April, the book retails for $24.95.
