Ben Schomin [Caddie] Is Bryson DeChambeau’s New Caddie
Following Bryson DeChambeau agent’s clarification that Tim Tucker was not let go or fired, and that it was a mutual decision between the two of them, it was reported Ben Schomin will be caddying for Bryson.
Apparently, Ben Schomin is Bryson’s emergency caddie.
Around 8 p.m. on June 30, 2021, Ben got a phone call that asked him to caddie for the No. 6-ranked player in the world” in a pinch.” So, the next day, Ben got up at 5 a.m., drove back to Detroit for Bryson’s first-round tee time of his title defense.
Before Bryson, he only had experience from the time at a PGA Tour event when he became caddie for former Golf Channel host Holly Sonders for three rounds at the PGA Tour’s American Express. Bryson’s was a therefore a slightly bigger stage for Ben.
