Growing up in Laguna Niguel, California, the American has caddied for the likes of Steve Elkington, Mike Weir, Paula Creamer, Charlie Wi, Dean Wilson, YE Yang, Bud Cauley, KJ Choi, and Geoff Ogilvy.

Bestor, who played his college golf at UC Santa Barbara in Arizona, got into caddying after he heard of a golfer who was in need of a bagman for an event.

Having enjoyed the experience so much, he decided to continue with caddying. He loved being around people with a passion, as well as being part of a team: “I guess I have a gambling mentality,” said Bestor.

With the American being on the bag for a number of big names, Bestor states that Stockholm is his favourite city to visit, with the world famous St Andrews being his favourite course to caddie around.

Bestor, who currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida, is also a big sports fan, with the LA Lakers, Dodgers and Pittsburgh Steelers being among his favourite teams.

Matt joined Golf Monthly in February 2021 covering weekend news, before also transitioning to equipment and testing. After freelancing for Golf Monthly and The PGA for 18 months, he was offered a full-time position at the company in October 2022 and continues to cover weekend news and social media, as well as help look after Golf Monthly’s many buyers’ guides and equipment reviews.

Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
