Chemistry over experience

caddie

Jordan Spieth has taken the golfing world by storm. But do you know anything about his caddie, Michael Greller? He’s a former elementary school math teacher and only started caddying professionally three years ago. The story of why the young golfer chose this particular caddie is an interesting and inspiring one:

“Why Masters Champion Jordan Spieth Hired a Former Schoolteacher as His Caddie” (from the Wall Street Journal)

Spieth reportedly values their personal chemistry (getting along well together) despite Greller’s lack of experience. That’s not to say Greller is only getting by on his personality. He works very, very hard. And he listens.

The comment about how the math you learn in 6th grade is actually useful in “real life” is funny, too.
