Given the amount of inquiry I have received regarding Dustin Johnson’s pending caddy hire, I am pleased to share the news of his decision to bring back Bobby Brown for 2012.
As you know, Dustin and Bobby have a special bond, and have been through a lot together. One of the most important and underrated aspects of any player/caddy relationship is chemistry, which they have always shared. Overall, they were very successful together, and I have every reason to believe they will again be going forward. I think the past eight months has given them both a chance to realize how good they were together and reflect on their past.
Quote from Dustin:
“I am really excited to have Bobby back on the bag. He and I have always been tight and I appreciate his work ethic. At the end of the day, it’s about results, and four of my five wins came with Bobby at my side. We’re both expecting big things in 2012.”
Quote from Bobby:
“It’s not often a caddy gets a second chance with a player of Dustin’s caliber, but our friendship and mutual respect never changed. He’s a phenomenal talent and a great dude, so I’m honored to be back with him. I can’t wait to get out there and pick up where we left off!”
On another note, I am happy to report that Dustin’s recovery is going very well, and he remains hopeful of playing at Kapalua. I’m sure it will be a “game time decision,” but he remains optimistic.
Thank you for your continued interest in Dustin and I hope to see you all in Hawaii. In the meantime, happy holidays to you and your families!
