Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk June 14-16 | Sponsored by Vault, Pinehurst Resort

1hr 20min | Documentary

Loopers 2The new hit movie Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk, is the most thorough feature-length film documentary ever developed on golf’s historic caddie profession. The film, narrated by actor and former caddie Bill Murray, has drawn critical acclaim in early 2019.

“Loopers charts the history of golf from its origins in Scotland to modern times. Traditionally, the caddie’s mantra was to ‘show up, keep up and shut up.’ They were banned from the clubhouse and treated poorly. However, they became an important part of the sport, acting as the player’s technical adviser, psychologist and confidant.” – Sunday Times, Ireland
