Tiger Woods to team up with experienced caddie for Masters 2024 at Augusta National.

April 6, 2024

Bennett’s name is listed as Woods’ caddie for the tournament. Bennett previously worked as a long-standing caddie for Matt Kuchar, and more recently served Sungjae Im and Davis Riley. He also has experience with Zach Johnson and Bill Haas, as well as a brief period working on the LPGA circuit. Previously paired at this year’s Genesis Invitational, Woods once again teams up with Bennett for this event.

Woods shared at Riviera that he has had a wonderful connection with his new partner for several years, dating back to when they both participated in the Presidents Cup together and when he caddied for Kuch. Their interactions have always been real and reliable, as evident from their participation in numerous Ryder Cups over time. Woods also mentioned how much he admired the way his colleague approaches golf courses and reads putts – which is similar to him- making them an excellent match on any course they play together moving forward. He’s excited about this partnership!

Joe LaCava, who had been Woods’ caddie since 2011, was given permission by Woods last May to take up a full-time job with Patrick Cantlay. However, before him there were only two long-term caddies for Woods – Mike “Fluff” Cowen and Steve Williams.

In December, Woods had announced his intentions to limit his playing schedule to once a month for the entirety of 2024. Despite this plan, the accomplished golfer has only participated in one tournament so far this year – he managed just one round at February’s Genesis Invitational before withdrawing due to illness on day two. In 2023, Woods played an abbreviated season that saw him compete in just two events prior to ankle surgery after the Masters; over the past four years he has finished all rounds of sanctioned tournaments twice.

At 48, Woods is poised to participate in his twenty-sixth Masters competition. With five previous victories under his belt and a perfect record of making the cut during each of his last 25 appearances (with the exception being an unfortunate injury-related withdrawal from Augusta’s weekend events just one year ago), he remains as formidable as ever. Moreover, eager fans can look forward to hearing from him directly on Tuesday when he takes time out for media interviews.
