Bryson DeChambeau’s former caddie reveals the ‘main mistake’ of the American star’s split.
Tim Tucker, Bryson DeChambeau’s former caddie, speaks out about the American golfer’s recent divorce.
Tim Tucker, Bryson DeChambeau’s former caddie, claims he made a “huge mistake” by breaking up with the 2020 US Open champion.
Tucker discussed his recent split from DeChambeau in an interview with Golf’s Subpar podcast. The two parted ways at the end of last month, just one day before the Rocket Mortgage Classic at Detroit Golf Club.
“I made a tremendous mistake in my timing with it,” the former caddy admitted. That shouldn’t have happened; we should have finished the week.”
The World No. 6 was then left scrambling for a caddy just one day before the tournament in Detroit began, and while he eventually found Cobra’s Ben Schomin to assist him on the bag, Tucker regrets putting DeChambeau in such a tough predicament so close to the start of play.
“I didn’t plan to put that pressure on him,” he explained. I’m sure he had a lot on his mind when he decided to join the Rocket Mortgage team. I’m sorry for how things turned out.”
DeChambeau eventually missed the cut at the Royal Mortgage after his one-under par first two rounds were not enough to secure a weekend spot at Detroit Golf Club despite his pre-tournament woes.
Despite parting ways with the Californian golfer, DeChambeau’s former caddy, who was on the bag for all eight of DeChambeau’s PGA Tour victories, had nothing but love for him.
“I’ve been extremely blessed to be able to caddy for this guy,” he remarked. He’s the hardest worker I’ve ever seen, and he puts everything on the line for this game.”
Tucker also spoke on the high expectations the 2020 US Open winner has for himself and the demands he places on his teammates.
“However, Bryson is quite demanding,” Tucker added. That is a terrific quality in an employer since it motivates you to improve.
“If you don’t keep improving, learning, and pushing yourself in all you do, you’ll become complacent, start making mistakes, and stop growing. That’s something he makes you do, and it’s incredible. He expects it of everyone.”
