The Links: Caddie turned club champion now a PGA Tour winner
Tiger Woods is streaking, Bubba Watson on his green jacket and there's a new No. 1 on the women's side.
Kevin Streelman was a caddie not that long ago:
I went from caddie to club champion at Whisper Rock, which is a pretty cool story," Streelman said.
Whisper Rock is the Arizona course designed by Phil Mickelson with a roster of tour pros who paid full freight -- believed to be six figures -- just to join. In 2002, a year after graduating from Duke, Streelman caddied there on the weekends as well as another course during the week, trying to make ends meet and keep his golf dream alive.
"And then I would play golf from 2 until dark," he said.
