Caddie Hat Program

brent

PGA caddies inspire and advise professional golfers.
They're the gurus of the grounds.

Caddies are the guys whose wisdom and encouragement help players become champions. Nature Valley applauds these outstanding individuals. And our Caddie Hat Program celebrates their very significant contributions to the game. The program rewards caddies who wear the Nature Valley hat based on the number of PGA TOUR tournaments they participate in and how their player scores. It’s just one of the ways we recognize these often unsung heroes of the fairway.

Brent Henley has been a PGA TOUR caddie since 2001. During his career, he has caddied for four PGA Tour winners, a second-place PGA TOUR Championship finisher and a third-place U.S. Open player. He has also caddied in the 2007 Presidents Cup. A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, he enjoys golfing and walking his pet bulldog.

Find more time to practice.
Remember even 10 or 15 minutes of working on your skills in the backyard or garage can improve your golf game.

Be realistic.
Golf skills develop over time. So don't expect to golf like a pro overnight. Stay focused and enjoy the game. You may be surprised at your own progress.


Golf with your kids.
If you want to help kids become golfers, take them with you when you play. It's fun. And it's how many golfers, including myself, got into the game.

Kip Henley has worked as a club pro and played in multiple PGA TOUR and Nationwide Tour events. He has caddied for several pros throughout his career but has worked with Brian Gay for the last six years. His experience removing an alligator from a golf tournament green has made him a legend in the world of caddies.

Take lessons.
It's easier to develop good habits than it is to unlearn bad ones. Do your research and find a PGA TOUR pro that can teach you how to do it right.

Build from a short swing.
Work on hitting down into the ball on the ground. Lean the shaft towards the target at impact. Then de-loft the iron.


Start young.
My brother and I both started playing when we were kids. High school buddies used to laugh at us. Now they wish they could play as well as we do.

Steve Hulka began his PGA TOUR caddying career 40 years ago when he was just 20 years old. Over the course of his career he has worked for over 140 different players and enjoyed watching them win 14 times. A Chicago native, he now lives in Phoenix. He's a fan of classic rock and the Chicago White Sox.

Look front, hit back.
When you address the ball, keep your eyes focused on its front face. This will help you hit the back of the ball every time.

Putt at sunset.
Practice putting just before the sun goes down. It enables you to learn the feel of your stroke and sense the location of the ball and the hole.


Walk the course.
It's the best way to enjoy the course's natural beauty. Plus, walking is great exercise. On a typical 18-hole course, you'll cover 7 or 8 miles.
