Tim Mickelson retires from caddying, ends 8-year on-course relationship with brother Phil Mickelson

Lefty needs a new looper.

Phil Mickelson announced on social media that his brother, Tim Mickelson, has retired from caddying, ending an eight-year on-course relationship highlighted by Phil’s historic 2021 PGA Championship victory and subsequent move to LIV Golf. Tim took the job after Phil and longtime caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay split in 2017 and was on the bag for Lefty’s wins at the 2018 WGC-Mexico Championship and 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Before he caddied for his brother, Tim was a college golf coach at the University of San Diego and Arizona State University, where he coached Jon Rahm. He then briefly served as Rahm’s agent for a year before he started his career as a caddie.
