Justin Thomas parts ways with caddie Jim ‘Bones’ Mackay one week before Masters

In a surprising announcement just days before the Masters, Justin Thomas revealed that he and caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay have decided to part ways. Thomas expressed gratitude for the time they spent together, noting the memorable victories they achieved, such as the PGA Championship in 2022, the Presidents Cup, and the Ryder Cups. He acknowledged Mackay’s unwavering support and wisdom both on and off the course, especially during challenging times in his career.

Reports indicate that Thomas has enlisted veteran caddie Matt Minister, who previously worked with Patrick Cantlay, to carry his bag at the upcoming Masters tournament. Thomas had brought Mackay on board in 2021 after his successful tenure as an NBC Sports reporter and as Phil Mickelson’s longtime caddie. Prior to Mackay, Thomas had worked with experienced caddie Jimmy Johnson.

Despite their major win together in 2022, Thomas experienced a rough patch in his career, with a disappointing season in 2023 that saw him miss the FedExCup playoffs and require a captain’s pick for the Ryder Cup. Recently, Thomas has shown signs of improvement with eight top-12 finishes since last fall. He continues to work on his swing with his father, Mike, and has made strides in his approach play, although his putting performance remains a challenge.
