Caddies may not make as much money as golf players, but they do make a good living themselves. They get a percentage of their players’ prize money. They also earn from endorsement deals. They need to wear bibs with names and logos of the tournament sponsors, but they are free to display their own logos on their hats and shirtsleeves.
Here are the top 10 highest paid caddies on the 2015 PGA Tour.
