    While Tiger Woods is on his couch, recovering from a pair of autumn back surgeries, his caddie, Joe LaCava, is playing a lot of golf.

    Since Woods' 2014-15 PGA Tour season ended at the Wyndham Championship in August, LaCava, as he told ESPN, has played some 50 rounds of golf. In other words, he's playing enough golf for himself and his boss. He misses being on the road, seeing friends and doing his job alongside the best player of this generation.

    But, despite overtures from other players, LaCava is sticking by his man.

    "A couple of guys approached me, I don't want to name any names, but I [politely] said no,'' LaCava said of those part-time or temporary offers. "My plan is to wait for Tiger to get back. I've told them I just want to work for Tiger and nobody else at this point. They were all nice about it. They didn't know what my situation was. I've elected to wait things out with Tiger and that is my plan going forward.''
