There have been numerous female caddies in men’s professional golf through the years. None are more famous than Fanny Sunesson.
She made her name on the bag with Nick Faldo. The duo won four major titles together in the 1990s. She also had stints with Sergio Garcia, Fred Funk and Notah Begay III before retiring in 2012.
She came back and caddied for Adam Scott at the 2018 Open Championship as well as fellow Swede Henrik Stenson at the 2019 Masters.
Sunesson set the bar high for female caddies in the men’s professional game, but she also paved the way for women to have more opportunities as caddies. Many others have followed, and it’s not a surprise to see a female caddie, often times wives or girlfriends, at a PGA Tour event.
At the 3M Open outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota native Frankie Capan III has his mom on the bag and does full-time on the Korn Ferry Tour.
