A bad week for Vijay Singh's caddie
The richest caddie on the PGA Tour this year had a rough end of the year.
Dave Renwick, who has been with Vijay Singh for seven of his nine victories, was held up at knifepoint by two men in downtown Atlanta as he was returning from dinner at the start of the week. Renwick was robbed of his watch and money, although he was not injured.
Then, he was mysteriously missing from the bag of the No. 1 player on the weekend. Singh instead used his trainer, Joey Diovisalvi, for the final two rounds.
Singh said Renwick had a bad hip, although that raised eyebrows because the Scottish caddie was seen at East Lake early Saturday morning.
There has been speculation that the two were about to part ways, although Singh said Renwick would be back on the bag at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in Hawaii in two weeks.
It has been a peculiar relationship over the last 18 months.
Singh has praised Renwick for his work, although it hasn't always been a ringing endorsement.
``The caddie is as good as the player, and I proved it twice this year,'' Singh said, noting that Diovisalvi caddied for two of his wins. ``I'm pretty happy with his work, and I guess he's happy with what he's been rewarded with.''
