Tryon Selects Rinker as Caddie in Professional Debut


Ty Tryon_HSSeventeen-year-old high school junior Ty Tryon will make his professional debut next week at the Tampa Bay Classic, and hell do so with a rather interesting choice of caddies on his bag.
Larry Rinker, a longtime PGA Tour veteran and fellow Orlando resident of the Tryons, is scheduled to tote for the youngster not just in Tampa, but also at the Trophee Lancome in France the following week.
No word has yet surfaced concerning the length of the partnership.
In a season marked with an influx of talented young players, Tryon is far-and-away the youngest.
Yet, he has shown signs of a mature game, making the cut in both his PGA Tour appearances this year, finishing tied for 39th in the Honda Classic and tied for 37th at the B.C. Open.
