#hackgolf The game has shrunk because carts wiped out a generation of future die-hards. Need to support young caddie programs. @hackgolforgFour months later, my stance hasn't changed. I caddied one summer at St. Charles Country Club outside of Chicago. My love of the game was cemented on Monday mornings that year. Many of my best golfing friends were introduced to the game in the same way. Some of these guys didn't have parents who played and never would've been exposed to the game otherwise.
