David Faircloth caddied for Sergio Garcia during his win in the Wyndham Championship. He and Sergio never discussed any financial arrangement for the week but he is confident that Sergio will take care of him for his work during the week in Greensboro. While he doubts that he will receive 10%, he will be happy to receive whatever Sergio wants to give him.
During the week, his role was to stay out of the way and carry the bag. Sergio did most of the work including calculating yardages and he began to relax more once he realized that he was a caddie who would be able to stay out of the way and be low maintenance.
He already knows that he is a very good caddie who is more than capable of doing the job during a PGA TOUR event. He told Sergio that he was not only confident in his own ability as a caddie but also in Sergio as a player. During the Wyndham Championship, Sergio was very impressive in all aspects of his game but if he could pick one thing that he excelled in most, Faircloth would say that his putting was the best part of his game at Sedgefield.
Veteran caddie Tony Navarro, who worked for Bud Cauley last week, grabbed the flag off the flagstick on the 18th hole after the final round and made sure that Faircloth received it because traditionally, the caddie receives the flag when his or her player wins a tournament.
Although he knows that the bags at Eagle Point in Wilmington, NC won’t be of Sergio Garcia’s stature, he looks forward to returning to the club with the experience that he has from working for a PGA TOUR winner.
