From what I understand, the caddie that Kuchar used was a replacement provided by either the PGA or the course because his normal caddie couldn't make it. So I assume he was more of a "just carry the bag" kind of caddie. So is that worth the same 10% that a normal caddie is worth? Probably not. But if I just won over a million bucks, I think I would've been a bit more generous than that.
    I'm aware he was replacement level, to me that doesn't matter. Either this is a "rule" you honor or it isn't. And cp, given his lowball original payment, that is the definition of an asshole.
    Priorities:
    1. Yankees lose
    2. Red Sox win

    It is the definition of the word asshole to you and that is fine. I normally don't judge people that I don't know and particularly here on the internet. I did not like what he did. He apologized and made it right.

    I made a $10 bet at 34 to 1 odds on Francesco Molinari, with our wonderfully easy to use government-run Pro-Line sports gambling service.

    Woods looking like the champ unless he implodes. Probably only Koepka has a chance if he doesn't.

    Congrats to Brooks Koepka! He just flat out dominated through 54 holes. I had the pleasure of being at Bethpage yesterday. I was following Dustin Johnson, hoping at least for the tournament to be a little closer, which it ended up being. I love Koepka. We have the same us against the world mentality, which at this point in my life, has proved to be very valuable to me.

    You lucky dog you. I would love to attend a major some day.

    Koepka is something special. It would have been dreadful if he didn't hang on yesterday, but he did. It shows you that no matter how good and how mentally strong you are, sometimes the pressure gets crazy.

    I paid $110 per ticket to see a guy that wasn't even there, but it was still a good time. I'm actually glad Tiger wasn't there, because the crowds with Brooks made it nearly impossible to walk with him. Just think what it would have been like for Tiger. Nonetheless, I might try to go to the US Open at Winged Foot next June to try to finally see Tiger

    Golf is back! So nice to see the sights and feel all the same emotions again, especially as I patiently wait for my opportunity to work the Travelers Championship in two weeks as an "essential volunteer". And just because sports has the power to heal, it is no surprise that Harold Varner III, the only black player on tour other than Tiger Woods, is tied for the lead after day 1. I thought that was worth mentioning, coming a week and a half after sitting down with the commissioner to talk about current events.

    Good stuff. I'm a big fan of HV III, love to see him win one, or make some serious money at least.

    Widely regarded as one of the nicest, if not the nicest, guy on tour. I have gotten the chance to walk 18 holes with him at the Travelers as a scorer. I root for all of the guys I've walked with.
