Here’s a story I missed from last weekend’s Canadian Open: player Jay Williamson fired his caddy, Mike Mollet, on the 15th hole of the first round in the Canadian Open.
It gets better.
The disagreement apparently started following the 14th, where Williamson flew the green. The two got into an argument, and Williamson fired Mollet on the spot. Mollet then retaliated by throwing Williamson’s balls into a nearby pond.
Left without someone to tote his bag, Williamson chose from the gallery 69-year-old Don Alexander, who, it turns out, had actually played in the Canadian Open in 1962.
Alexander beat Gary Player that year. Player was DQ’d, and Alexander finished last.
