Caddie Fame

"Tip" Enters the Hall of Fame at the Open

St. Andrews Citizen July 21, 2000.

Caddie fame St Andrews caddie Tip Anderson was among the nominees into the Professional Caddies Association Hall of Fame during the Open. THE ‘‘forgotten’’ heroes of the golfing world received some well-deserved recognition last week when three caddies were honoured by the Professional Caddies Association. Arnold Palmer’s well-known local caddy, James ‘‘Tip’’ Anderson, was among the nominees inducted into the PCA’s Caddie Hall of Fame last Tuesday, along with Peter Colman, who caddied for Bernhard Langer, and Willie Aitchison, a caddy on the European Tour. During the ceremony, in the Rusacks Hotel, St Andrews,the three men were each presented with a Waterford Crystal clock and a certificate. Representatives from the PCA had been in the townall week to seek sponsorship for their plan to build a Caddie Hall of Fame in or near St Andrews in the future. Members are hoping it will follow in the footsteps of the first-ever Hall of Fame, currently scheduled to open at the Golf Village in St Augustine, Florida, in March of next year. The Professional Caddies Association was set up three years ago, and in that time, has raised funds for golfing scholarships and enlisted the support of many of the major golfing associations to produce an unprecedented package for caddies throughout the world. With a membership ofalmost two-and-a-half thousand, the PCA is also busy developing a Caddie Certification Programme and a Junior and Professional Apprentice Programme.
