YardBarker- PGA Tour golfer Steve Wheatcroft was not near the top of the leader board after three rounds at The Players Championship, so he decided to have a little fun during the event’s final round on Sunday.
Wheatcroft shot 68, 74, and 79 in the first three rounds and found himself in 70th place after Saturday’s action. It was obvious there wasn’t much for him to play for on the final day, so he decided to switch up caddies. With the tournament being held not far from Jacksonville, Wheatcroft called on someone familiar to fans of the Jaguars.
Wheatcroft shot 73 on the final 18 holes, which was his best showing since the first round. Scobee may or may not have had anything to do with it, but kudos to Wheatcroft for thinking outside of the box and having a little fun on the final day after a disappointing first three rounds.
Now Josh, don't you go about worrying yourself with the best interests of the New Orleans Saints. I think your teammates - that you have yet to drive insane by repeatedly missing chip shot field goals - will understand that you have found your true calling. I know you want to continue place kicking, but sometimes in life it's not about what you want to do. Sometimes it's about what you were meant to do. I don't know if you born to be a caddy, but you're far better at providing a dependable club than you are at providing a dependable leg. New Orleans will miss you, but we can make due with Kai Forbath. The same can't be said for your buddy Steve Wheatcroft who is destined to live a life full of missed cuts if he keeps letting that bum Mike weigh him down the leaderboard with unsatisfactory advice. One round and already a 6 stroke improvement? By God, you're a natural! Why waste your time being the world's most disrespected type of athlete when you can be the world's most disrespected type of athletic supervisor? I'm not exactly a golf aficionado, but with the potential you have shown on the fairways there appears to be a wealth of secondary accomplishments in your future. I can't - no - I won't stand idly by while the team I root for employs someone that is sacrificing a host of grateful pats on the back just for the loudest of boos and the most derogatory of jeers. Trust me Josh, this is about what's best for you...and what's best for the mental health of Saints fans, but mostly best for you.
