This week, Tiger Woods is expected to debut a new looper at the Genesis Invitational. According to Golfweek, Woods will have veteran caddie Lance Bennett on the bag at Riviera. Bennett has a long history of caddying for top players, including Matt Kuchar, Sungjae Im and Davis Riley in the past. Currently, he works for rookie Adrien Dumont de Chassart, who is not in the field but is represented by the same agency as Woods, Excel Sports.
Woods’ decision to work with Bennett comes after he mutually parted ways with longtime caddie Joe LaCava last year. LaCava took on more of a full-time role with Patrick Cantlay. However, Woods’ business partner Rob McNamara filled in for him at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship. The Golfweek report notes that Bennett isn’t necessarily a permanent solution for Woods’ bag.
