LEMONT, Ill. – It’s impossible to quantify how important a good caddie can be to a Tour player, but an episode Sunday at the BMW Championship demonstrated the value of a good looper.

Just as Zach Johnson settled in over his 7-footer for birdie at Cog Hill’s 10th hole, longtime caddie Damon Green stepped in to adjust his man’s read. Johnson rolled in the putt on his way to a final-round 68 which lifted him to 12th on the FedEx Cup points list.

“He’s the grain reader and I thought it was going to break right but Damon saw something else,” Johnson said. “That’s why I have him. He’s a player caddie, a caddie who can play, and that’s important.”
