    Kuchar - Mayakoba Caddie Drama - Your Take?

    Iím sure most saw or heard about this, and I honestly think it was part of Kuchís slow start yesterday. Word out there is he payed local caddie ĎEl Tucaní only 3k after his 1.3 million dollar win at the Mayakoba in 2018.

    Kuch says itís a non story, social media is losing their ****, what say you about maybe the nicest guy on tour doing this?

    If true, my opinion of Kuch does change a little. A couple tour pros seemed to confirm it, and said that wasnít out of character for Kuchar.

    Itís one of those where I donít think weíll ever hear the real story, but disappointing that thereís even a possibility of being true.

    Kuch has and always will be one of my faves on tour. Classy guy in my mind. Never out for himself. Iíd imagine the local caddy agreed to the fee and either didnít know about the 10% prior to doing so or didnít care. I could see Kuch throwing him some more cash but if the guy agreed to it....then I donít really see what the big deal is.

    If it was agreed on before they played then it is a non issue whether he did or didn't tip him. I was wondering before he teed off yesterday if it was going to affect him and it appeared to do so. I'm glad he shook it off and still won.

    Kuchar - Mayakoba Caddie Drama - Your Take?

    I got to meet Kuch once at Firestone in Akron. It was right before dusk on the practice day and I was heading out. Saw a few peeps over by the ropes. Immediately saw it was Kuch (really tall) I started to approach to say hi and maybe get a autograph. Then kinda steered away to head out. My nephew was with me. Kuch kinda yelled over the 5-6 people that were there already and said ďhey bring that little guy over here....Iím still out here so youíre good!Ē We headed over and he basically took selfies with every person there (maybe 10 people and then gave autographs to all the kids on balls and some gloves. Then thanked US....yes us...for the support and sticking around so long on a practice day since he knew he was the last guy on the course.

    Kuch is a real man and a role model for youngsters. If people wanna make a big deal out of an agreement they have no privvy of then they have an agenda. Just my 2c

    I am with you, non factor as I am Sure there was an agreement. Maybe they choose not to speak of it before cause the guy lives in Mexico and it would be detrimental to the guy where he lives.....ever think of that?

    I have a real hard time passing judgment without the real facts out there. It's none of my business, so I'm in the "don't care" camp. If it was another player with less of a good guy personality, it may change my opinion.

    I get that there are agreements and a "standard" but in the end Kuchar can do whatever he wants, its his money and I could care less. I highly doubt he stiffed the guy completely and have no doubt the media is blowing it out of proportion.
