    Also, I recall seeing one article that said maybe they dont want the real amount known for safety reasons for the caddie since Mexico doesnt exactly have the greatest track record on the hostage, extortion, killing side of things

      I believe this was a business negotiation between two people. I'm positive I don't have enough real information to know any real details of the transaction. I dont have any idea what is in either parties heart as well. Maybe Kuch isn't what we want him to be. Maybe the caddy isn't. I'd rather talk about golf stuff not rumors. Particularly when it concerns people not equipment. One things for sure his caddy this week got paid!!.

        Tom Gillis seems to be the driving force on Twitter, i ask him why this is such a campaign for him, he said its "what's right vs. what's wrong" but this is not the first time he went on twitter too call someone out for not paying, i believe there was a putting contest bet that someone did not pay & Gillis did the same thing then

          The best solution here is to start spreading rumors that the journalists reporting this donít pay their mechanics an appropriate rate. Seems just as relevant and likely to be true.

          If the caddie isnít complaining, or talking....whereís the story? Arenít journalists supposed to have some kind of evidence before printing anything?

            Non story imo. They agreed to 3k before hand and the caddie was fine with that. If the caddie suddenly found himself with 10% he would have quite likely found himself or his family in a ditch.

              Whatever was agreed upon between the two of them, as long as that was upheld, that's all that matters. What that agreement was is none of my business.

              Like others here have commented, having met Kuch once, I'll base my opinion off of that interaction.

                  I am in your camp too Jman. While we don't know the full truth on this, there was an agreement before hand and it appears by some of the statements that Kuch paid him more than 3k.

                    Heard about it on PGA Radio yesterday and had forgotten about it until I saw this thread. Things like this do not excite me. Whatever he did he did for a reason and it is his business not mine.

                      This fits the mold of a lot of social media outrage. People taking a scrap of information, deciding whether they think it's fair or not, and then start screaming about it if they deem it unfair. This was a business transaction between 2 men. It doesn't appear that Kuchar paid less than they agreed to beforehand and we will never know the truth of whether there was anything extra or not. This is a big old nothing.

                        Creating controversy when there is none - - welcome to the dark side of social media! This is/was between Kuchar and his caddie. Period.

                            Nope. I feel the same way too. Average income in that city is $850 a month and the caddie got almost 4 months of income for 4 days of work. And thats if $3,000 is all he got.

                              I am sure the caddie walked away with more than 3k. Beyond that, it's none of my business.

                              Weird to throw a guy like Kuch under the bus. You're not going to go very far with that narrative.
