On the Bag: Seventy Years
Remembered by Pinehurst's Hall-of-Fame Caddie, Willie
As Told by Rob & Patty Taft.
Willie McRae has been a caddie at Pinehurst since his
10th birthday, and he continues to
this day 73 years later. Willie's memoir “On The Bag” is an
engaging and entertaining journey of Willie’s life and times on and
off the links. His career at Pinehurst parallels the great
history of the game of golf. Willie has caddied for five
presidents, celebrities from Michael Jordan to Mickey Mantle and
many of golf’s greatest players, including Bobby Jones, Gene
Sarazen and Sam Snead. Willie is one of just two living
participants of the 1951 Ryder Cup, which was contested at
Pinehurst, and remembers looping for the legendary Donald Ross on
Ross’s crown jewel, Pinehurst No. 2. In “On The Bag,” Willie recounts in rich detail many of those moments and
the profound effects they’ve had on one of Pinehurst’s most
enduring figures in its history.
Highly Recommended. Willie is a Legend!!!

I had the blessing of Willie caddying for myself and 2 close friends from Australia. As a former tour caddy I got chills stepping on the tee with Willie waiting on those crazy amazing golf stories from years on the bag. Willie's attitude is "everybody is a celebrity when you caddying for them." Definitely a must purchase piece of history!!!
