LAST WORD

I knew Sybi was in the crowd, I knew she’d cad­died for me be­fore, she’s friendly with Zach John­son. I fig­ured she’d be a good one to han­dle Zach, and Zach would def­i­nitely go easy on her. She knows the deal of keep­ing up and stay­ing out of the way and so I knew she could han­dle it.”

PGA Tour player Matt Kuchar, per Golf.com, on his wife, Sybi, step­ping in as an emer­gency cad­die for Zach John­son on Thurs­day. The two-time ma­jor cham­pion had a bit of a cri­sis dur­ing the open­ing round of the Mayakoba Golf Clas­sic. Reg­u­lar looper Da­mon Green strug­gled with the heat (suf­fer­ing from de­hy­dra­tion, ac­cord­ing to the PGA Tour’s Cameron Mor­fit) and couldn’t go past the first 14 holes.
