Phil Mickelson’s Trusty Caddie Steps Down After Nearly a Decade on the Job

Tim Mickelson steps down as Phil’s caddie; Phil announces.

Tim Mickelson, a key member of Phil Mickelson’s team, is stepping down from his role as caddie after nearly eight years on the job. Mickelson announced the news on Tuesday, expressing gratitude for the special moments they have shared both on and off the course.

When Tim first took over as Phil’s caddie in 2017, he had recently left his job as a college golf coach to become Jon Rahm’s agent. Under Tim’s guidance, Mickelson secured three PGA Tour wins, including the 2021 PGA Championship. However, since transitioning to LIV Golf two years ago, Mickelson has not seen as much success in the Saudi-backed league. Despite this, Mickelson treasures the experiences they have had together and looks forward to creating more memories in the future.

Although a replacement has not been revealed yet, the next LIV Golf event is scheduled for next week at Doral, just outside of Miami. Mickelson will continue to navigate the professional golf world with a new caddie by his side as he competes in upcoming tournaments.
