Who Is Corey Conners' Caddie?
Corey Conners' maiden win on the PGA Tour came in 2019 at the Valero Texas Open and he has had some other impressive finishes on the PGA Tour, including a T8 finish at the 2021 Masters, along with two 3rd place finishes at the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational and 2022 WGC-Dell Technologies Matchplay. He's had a couple of men on the bag since he became a professional but who is Corey Conners' current caddie?
Who Is Corey Conners' Caddie?
On the bag for the Masters with Corey Conners' is Danny Sahl. We believe Sahl came onto the bag around the start of the 2021 calendar year as he had been on the bag of Vijay Singh up until at least November 2020. Sahl and Singh were a close partnership, and even lived together during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Sahl, who is also Canadian, has caddied for fellow Canadian Mike Weir as well but right now the Conners-Sahl partnership seems to be working.
He is atually a good player himself, starring at Kent State University and turning pro in 2001. In 2011 he won the Syncrude Boreal Open on the PGA Tour Canada. After the win his playing career took a slide and so he turned to caddying; “I practiced but I didn’t practice the way I should have,” he said. “Now, I have a much better understanding of the way I should practice. Becoming a caddie gave me the chance of staying with the game at its highest level.”

It is not known exactly when or why Conners sought the services of Danny Sahl, but it ended the long-term partnership with his former caddie Kyle Peters. Peters was Conners' caddie from his very early ventures into amateur golf when they first met on the Korn Ferry Tour.
They partnered up when they first met at an event in Jacksonville and what Peters thought would be a one week job over in Napa Valley, California quickly became a full time job. It is not known whether Peters is still a caddie on Tour or why him and Conners parted ways in 2021.
