(Sports Spectrum) Few relationships in sports are as unique as the one between golfer and caddie. Sometimes, it’s simply business. Sometimes, a friendship forms. For PGA Tour veteran Webb Simpson and his longtime caddie, Paul Tesori, the two are like brothers on the course, off the course and in eternity.
Simpson’s relationship with Tesori began in December 2010 with a simple phone call. Simpson’s last caddie had left to become a pastor, so he was in need of a new caddie. Meanwhile, Tesori was hours away from accepting a job with a more highly-ranked golfer.
All Tesori knew was that Simpson was 25, a couple of years out of Wake Forest and a fellow Christ-follower. Although Tesori was the one seeking a job, he was the one who asked most of the questions.
