Caddy's New Venture

David Howell’s right-hand man launches ‘tour experience’ scheme

By Chris Johnston

EUROPEAN TOUR caddy Steve Brotherhood is offering amateur golfers the kind of advice he gives Tour star David Howell after 12 years of carrying a bag on the world’s top courses.

His Tour Caddy Experience service is available to regular  club players for as little as £60 over nine holes and backed  by leading golf club rental firm ClubstoHire.com, who recently became the first hire company to offer customers the new TaylorMade M2 driver.

PRESTIGIOUS

Steve, or ‘Bro’ as he is better known to fellow caddies and players on tour, has been caddying for Howell for the past  five years and helped him to victory in the prestigious  Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns in 2013. It was Howell’s first tour title in  six years.

Now, the enterprising tour caddy aims to give amateur golfers advice on yardages, club selection, reading greens and course management strategy, while providing each customer with a written report after the session to help them improve future scores.

SKILLS

“As well as carrying a bag on tour for more than a decade, I’ve also competed as a professional - winning the Notts Open at my home club in Newark in 2015 - so I fully understand how difficult playing the game can be,” said Brotherhood, left.

“The Tour Caddy Experience enables me to pass on skills and tips that are directly relevant to each golfer’s game, but not normally accessible to amateur players. Hopefully, my insight and knowledge will lead to lower scoring and more enjoyment on the course.”
