Tiger Woods is reportedly set to debut a new looper at this week’s Genesis Invitational, according to Golfweek. It was announced that veteran caddie Lance Bennett will be on the bag at Riviera, where Woods will be competing.
Bennett has an impressive resume as a caddie and has worked with some of the biggest names in golf, including Matt Kuchar, Sungjae Im, and Davis Riley. Currently, he works for rookie Adrien Dumont de Chassart, who is not in the field and is represented by the same agency as Woods, Excel Sports.
Woods recently parted ways with his longtime caddie Joe LaCava, who took on more of a full-time role with Patrick Cantlay last year. Woods’ business partner, Rob McNamara, caddied for him at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship. However, according to Golfweek’s report, Bennett isn’t necessarily a permanent solution for Woods’ bag.
