Tim Mickelson retires as brother’s caddie

Tim Mickelson

Tim Mickelson no longer will serve as the caddie for his famous brother, Phil Mickelson announced Tuesday.

Tim Mickelson has been holding the bag for his older brother since replacing Jim “Bones” Mackay. The former is retiring to spend more time with his family.

“I’ve had some great accomplishments in my career and getting to share them with my brother Tim has been beyond special,” Phil Mickelson wrote on social media. “I’m very lucky to have had him on the bag for me the past eight years and as my brother for life.

“So much has changed since he was single and we started working together. He’s found his life partner, Maranda, they’ve had their second son, and hopefully their family will continue to grow. While Tim is retiring from caddying, I’ll always cherish the many great moments we’ve shared on the course, and I look forward to many more special moments off the course, too.”

With Tim Mickelson on the bag, his brother won three times on the PGA Tour. He recorded first-place finishes at the 2018 WGC-Mexico Championship and the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am before capturing his sixth major with a win at the 2021 PGA Championship.

Tim Mickelson previously was a golf coach at Arizona State, where he guided a young Jon Rahm. He then served as the Spaniard’s agent for a year.

Phil Mickelson, now competing in LIV Golf, did not announce his brother’s replacement. The next event in that league is LIV Golf Miami at Trump National Doral from April 5-7.
