Who Is Bryson DeChambeau's Caddie?

Bryson DeChambeau did have Tim Tucker on the bag and he had been part of the American's team for all eight of his PGA Tour victories. But in the run up to the 2021 Rocket Mortgage Classic reports circled that they had split and this was confirmed by Bryson's team.

DeChambeau's agent, Brett Falkoff, confirmed the news to Golf Channel saying: "They had a good run, and they mutually agreed yesterday afternoon to go their separate ways.

"Everything runs its course. Tim was getting tired and Bryson was getting tired. In any relationship they run their course, and that’s what happened here.

"It wasn’t one specific issue. It was a culmination. Like any caddie-player relationship, they had their ups and downs. They wish each other nothing but the best and will always be there for each other."

As such Bryson brought Ben Schomin, Cobra Golf's tour operations manager, onto the bag briefly, and then he had Brian Zeigler on the bag for a while. Zeigler came into the role after a stint as an instructor at Dallas National Golf Club, which is Bryson's home club.

We don't know that much about Zeigler but having looked at his Instagram it looks like he has a partnership with Hanah Life, a company that makes supplements.

However Bryson then showed up to LIV Tulsa and the 2023 PGA Championship with Gregory Bodine, a man who used to caddie for Tony Finau

As we mentioned, Tim Tucker used to caddie for Bryson, and they were immensely successful. Tucker started caddying for DeChambeau at the 2016 Memorial tournament and continued to do so until the middle of 2017. The American then switched caddies to veteran Micah Fugitt before reuniting with Tucker in early 2018. DeChambeau has known Tucker since he was 15 years old but more importantly is able to read the vector green-reading system that DeChambeau uses.

Speaking about the split Tucker said in a Golf.com piece;

“We were really tired. The season; the tour schedule was grinding on us, grinding on me. I knew I was working on this business on the side; we’ve had a very intense relationship where he works a lot of hours. It was a little bit of me not being 100 percent healthy and happy…we made the best decision for the both of us.”

In that same piece Bryson said;

“Everybody always thinks there was some kind of falling out, but there really wasn’t. This was in the works for a while. Tim is a really, really great friend of mine. He’s somebody that I’ve cared about, and still care about, and will care about for the rest of my life.”

Tucker has previous experience as both a player and caddie, playing in the 2007 US Mid Amateur at his home course of Bandon Dunes Golf Resort where he used to caddie. The American also appeared at the Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur Championship reaching the last 16.
