THE HEART OF OUR MISSION

Our Caddies

The Trust is also helping to preserve one of the game’s most valued traditions, the caddie.
By supporting caddies in their traditional educational pursuits, golfers are reminded of the important role the caddie has played in the game’s history. In turn, this role is preserved for the game’s future.

The Outstanding Network of JWP Donors features partners in our work who:
REWARD determination and perseverance.
INVEST in our future leaders.
STRENGTHEN the crucial caddie legacy

MORE THAN A CENTURY LATER
