It's an idea whose time has come, a global golf competition between the world's top caddies.
Stellar players in their own rights, these men spend most of the year supporting the likes of Jim Furyk, and Bubba Watson, but this coming Monday they'll be taking part in the World Caddie Matches at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Golf Club.
It'll be Americans vs Internationals, and the one day/two round event will feature both alternate shot and singles matches. The public is welcome, and the gallery is expected to include a tour player... or several.
Proceeds from the World Caddie Matches will go to K9s for Warriors, a non-profit whose mission is to provide service dogs to veterans.
I'm guessing this unique, first ever world caddie tournament might just become an annual tradition.
