Who Is Tyler Strafaci’s Caddie?

Strafaci’s bagman has recently changed and we are yet to confirm who has got the role on a permanent basis.

Up until recently, he did have Bret Benjamin on the bag. We are unsure when exactly they started working together but he came on when Strafaci made appearances on the PGA Tour at the Farmer’s Insurance Open, and Genesis Invitational.

What is not known right now is why the partnership ended but as soon as we have more information we will update this page.

This partnership was an interesting one at the time given how much success Tyler had with his father Frank on the bag. Together they won the U.S. Amateur, and it was his father who was in the midst of a controversial moment during a Round of 16 match against Segundo Oliva Pinto.

Going down the 18th hole, Frank spotted Pinto’s caddie touch the sand of a bunker with his hand and subsequently called a rules official over.

Rule 12.2b states that a golfer or caddie must not deliberately touch sand in the bunker with a hand, club, rake or other object to test the condition of the sand to learn information for the next stroke.

If rule 12 is breached, the player receives the General Penalty, which is two strokes in stroke-play or loss of hole in matchplay.

Strafaci won the match 1up and went on to win the event.

“I was reading my putt and saw him duck down. I didn’t see him touch the sand, so I didn’t think I was right to make a decision on it, but my dad saw it and he’s going to fight to the death for me,” said Tyler Strafaci.

“It sucks that it came down to that because it was a phenomenal match.”
