Tim Mickelson steps down as Phil’s caddie; Phil announces.

Phil Mickelson’s longtime caddie and brother, Tim Mickelson, is retiring after nearly eight years on the job. The news was announced Tuesday by Mickelson himself, who expressed gratitude for the special moments they have shared on and off the course.

When Tim first became Phil’s caddie in 2017, he had recently left his job as a men’s college golf coach at Arizona State to become Jon Rahm’s agent. Under Tim’s guidance, Mickelson secured three PGA Tour wins, including the 2021 PGA Championship. However, since transitioning to LIV Golf two years ago, Mickelson has not seen as much success in the Saudi-backed league. Despite this, Mickelson treasures the experiences they have had together and looks forward to creating more memories in the future.

Tim’s replacement has not been revealed yet, but the next LIV Golf event is scheduled for next week at Doral, just outside of Miami. As he competes in upcoming tournaments, Mickelson will continue to navigate the professional golf world with a new caddie by his side.
