PGA Tour Cracking Down on Players, Caddies Not Following Protocols
It appears the PGA Tour has heard and seen enough of some players and caddies not following the health and safety protocols at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
According to Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post, the Tour sent a text to all caddies on Thursday night “urging them to wipe down flagsticks and not hand players clubs.”
“The PGA Tour perhaps reacting to some criticism about players and caddies not adhering to safety protocols, sent a text to caddies tonight urging them to wipe down flagsticks and not hand players clubs,” tweeted Cannizzaro.
This comes after a report surfaced on Wednesday that some players and caddies were not going to listen to safety protocols.
The Tour tested all players and caddies prior to the start of the tournament and there were no positive results.
After round one of the Charles Schwab Challenge, Justin Rose and Harold Varner III hold the lead at seven-under par.
