Everyone has an opinion. That’s fine; people are welcome to them. But when it comes to forming those opinions, a little information goes a long way towards making them have greater validity.
As you can imagine, being a golf publication in Eastern Ontario that has been sharing stories about Brooke and Brittany Henderson for about a decade and a half now, we have managed to get to know the pair quite well. That’s a lot of time spent observing them both as juniors, amateurs, playing professionals, and their current player/caddy relationship.
As the fame of the duo has grown around the world we also seem to end up in more conversations than ever about the pair.
One common theme we continue to hear (despite being together for multiple LPGA wins, including a major championship) is people bringing forward the idea that Brooke could have more success with a “professional” caddy.
I bristle at the assertion each time it is made. For several reasons.
Yes, if it bothers them, I am sure Brooke and Brittany can come to their own defense, but here’s my perspective.
The problem, it seems, for many people, is that they are not as familiar with Brittany…
