Amateur golfer Chris Crawford watched as the course took down his second-string caddie at the golfer’s first major tournament. It all happened during a practice round just before the major tournament.
As Jason Day was preparing his shot on the sixth hole, Crawford’s caddie suddenly slid down a grassy slope, coming right into a bunker located just behind the PGA Championship winner. The incident resulted in the caddie receiving a broken ankle.
Even after the scare he got from the fall and hearing the cracking as his ankle was breaking, the caddie hung onto his golf etiquette by holding in the cries as he was enduring incredible pain – until Day completed the shot. However, the golfer did not continue his shot prep and immediately stopped everything to help out the unnamed caddie.
Crawford is short on time to replace the caddie. Of course, this will not be all that hard, except that the new caddie will have to be willing to go up against the dangerous forces that the Oakmont Country Club course has to offer. It is not the longest of the US Open courses, but that makes it no less a challenge or intimidating.
“Some of the craziest greens I’ve ever played, and most penal fairway bunkers I’ve entered,” Rickie Fowler said. “It’s a fair golf course. You’ve just got to be on the right side of the hole. You’ve got to drive the ball well. A lot of characteristics of a typical, tough and hard US Open.”
