Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk
Loopers: The Caddies’s Long Walk is the most thorough feature-length film documentary ever developed on golf’s historic caddie profession and explores the incredible personal bond that a golfer and a caddie develop through hours of time together. The film is narrated by actor and the most famous Caddie Hall of Fame member, Bill Murray.
It is often said that a good caddie does three things: show up, keep up and shut up. But a great caddie wears many hats. They’re the player’s psychologist, mother/father figure, technical advisor and confidante. The film unveils the working dynamic between famous partnerships like the heartfelt story of Tom Watson’s and caddie Bruce Edwards. Conversely, it delves into the making of a caddie’s career with stories like Greg Puga — a young Bel Air Caddie from East Los Angeles who fought his way to Augusta to play in the Masters as a Mid-Amateur Champ. Another is the compelling legacy of caddie master Mike Kiely, who has been the caddie organizer at historic Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland for a half-century and guided many caddies toward successful lives.
Whether familiar or new, these are stories that will make you re-think the way you look at Golf, and especially the job of the Caddie.
