Bubba's caddie looping for Simpson this week


KAPALUA, Hawaii – 'Tis the season for PGA Tour players showing up in the Aloha State with a new caddie on the bag – but don’t be fooled into believing these are all long-term relationships.

Webb Simpson will have Ted Scott, the regular caddie for Bubba Watson, working with him at this week’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions, but don’t read too much into it. Paul Tesori, entering his third season as Simpson’s caddie, didn’t make the trip because his wife is expected to deliver a baby this week.

Tesori also missed time last year because of shoulder surgery, when Adam Hayes filled in on Simpson’s bag.

Scott will again be working with Watson when he makes his 2014 debut later this month.
