From Coach to Caddie: Phil Mickelson’s Longtime Caddie Tim Mickelson Announces Retirement

Phil announces Tim Mickelson’s retirement as his brother’s caddie

Phil Mickelson’s caddie, Tim Mickelson, has announced his retirement after nearly seven years on the job. In June 2017, Tim replaced Bones Mackay as Phil’s bagman following their split. During his time with Phil, Tim helped him win three times on the PGA Tour, including the 2021 PGA Championship.

Tim’s decision to retire comes as he wants to spend more time with his family. His brother’s life has evolved with his new partner Maranda and their growing family. Tim first took on the role of caddie for his brother after leaving his job as a college golf coach at Arizona State to become Jon Rahm’s agent. He followed Phil to LIV Golf two years ago but has not seen much success in the Saudi-backed league.

Phil expressed gratitude for the great moments shared with Tim both on and off the course over the past eight years. The replacement for Tim has not yet been announced, and LIV’s next event is scheduled for next week at Doral outside of Miami.
