Joe LaCava will give his insight to Patrick Cantlay. It will be LaCava’s first tournament since carrying Cars’ bag at the PNC Championship and at the Masters in November last year.
“I rode it first by Tiger,” LaCava told reporters Tuesday via ESPN.
LaCava started working for Woods in 2011. He replaces Cantlay’s caddy, Matt Minister, who became infected with coronavirus. Cantlay allegedly contacted LaCava.
Cantlay told Yahoo Finance that LaCava has never caddied for him before, but he had built a relationship with him from the Presidents Cup, which was last held in 2019. He said he thanked Woods for letting him use LaCava.
“We texted a little bit. And I just thanked him for letting me use Joe this week and letting him be free. So Tiger and I spent some time. We both live Jupiter [Florida] area. And we got really close for the first time, the Presidents Cup, ”said Cantlay.
“He was the captain there when we went to Melbourne for the Presidents Cup. And he did such an amazing job that week and was really attached to the boys. And, you know, we’ve been playing a little golf since then. And he’s just amazing. “So we can’t wait to get him back and get him back and healthy.”
Cantlay wants to pick up his fifth PGA Tour victory of his career.
He won the June Memorial Tournament in a playoff over Collin Morikawa.
Woods has been seen with a cast still on his leg. He has been out of golf since he was injured in a car accident in February.
