    Maybe lefty Brian Harman should try to snatch him up.

    Rather curious turn of events given that PM sent Bones to EH to scout it in the event he was going to make it. I wonder if that was going to be their last outing together anyway.

    Bones wanted Phil to use a 9 iron at the 17th island hole at Sawgrass. It would have been way too much club so they had a heated argument.

    Seems odd that one club at one hole and one heated argument would be enough to toss 25 years ... maybe one club at one hole and one heated argument was the straw that broke the camels back ... I know that after 22 years there's been a lot of arguments that are adding up in my relationship with my wife ... but firing your caddie is a lot cheaper than divorcing your wife.

    Thanks to both Phil and "Bones" for great golf memories and good luck to you both as you move forward.

    Interesting to see that "Bones" will now be an on course reporter for NBC starting at

    The Open.

    Yeah saw that on 17 at  the "Grass". Was a fairly spirited conversation for sure. No doubt dragging a bit of stuff up as well. Has been a great partnership and I wish them both well. Maybe Col can have a rest and "Bones" can pick up Mr.Day's bag.

    He couldn't handle Adam Scott's putting. Just one day of watching how good he hits it and how bad he putt's would kill Bones,lol.
