Any ideas how much caddie and golf coach typically pocket from the prize money ? I recalled reading something like 10% for caddie. If Joe is 10% , then he nearly got 400K from Tiger in less than 12 months with Tiger.... Oow ! and God knows whether the caddie has any % of prize money from the golfer's other winnings eg Fedex prize money.... Read somewhere that Sean's deal with Tiger is a % of Tiger's prize money in contrast with typically most golf coaches go for a lump sum monthly/yearly amount... If Sean is 5%, then it is quite a bit as well
Question: Guess the % of prize money that Joe and Sean get ? One thing is sure.... Both will be rich man though the money earned is not easy b/c of the extra stress from media and golf critics.... Don't catch me wrong... I think both Joe and Sean are good for Tiger... They give far more positive images than Hank and Steve in terms of professionalism and integrity.
Whereas, I can see a caddie getting a percentage of a player's purse since they are on the bag during play. But, if, Tiger is smart Sean would be on a contract which stipulates a set salary or commission with a bonus at the end of either a calendar or fiscal year. The bonus would be greater if Tiger wins major(s). lol
Steve Williams made over 8 million dollars caddying for Tiger in their 12 years together
