The richest man inside the ropes at the US Open will be a caddie
The co-founder of Sun Microsystems will caddie for his son at Pinehurst this year.
It's going to take some more intense insider trading than whatever it was Phil Mickelson allegedly did to leapfrog one of the caddies at this year's US Open in net worth.
That's because Scott McNealy will be looping for his son Maverick, who qualified by shooting 7 under at the sectional qualifier in Daly City, Calif.
Maverick is a freshman at Stanford who just competed in the NCAA Championships.
But who is Scott?
Oh, you know, just the co-founder of Sun Microsystems who, according to multiple websites, has a net worth of $1 billion.
He's an astute golfer himself, having competed in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, and not a fan of slow play (see video above). Dear golf gods, please pair Maverick with Kevin Na.
Scott caddied for Maverick at his qualifier and will do so again at Pinehurst. It will be humorous to me to watch a billionaire clean a golf ball and carry a bag of golf clubs -- stuff he can pay people many times over to do.
It will also be a reminder that golf is the great equalizer.
And Mr. McNealy, if Lefty comes to you on the range for some stock tips, run away as fast as you can.
