Jim (Bones) Mackay will caddie for one of the world’s best golfers the next two weeks

News

After a successful two-week stint on Matthew Fitzpatrick’s bag, Jim (Bones) Mackay will make a caddie cameo for another one of the world’s best golfers.

Golf Channel’s Chantel McCabe reported on Wednesday that Justin Thomas has hired the longtime looper for the next two weeks. And they are a big two tournaments at that with this week’s WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational and next week’s PGA Championship, the first major of 2020.

According to McCabe, Mackay is filling in for Jimmy Johnson, who is battling dizzyness related to the heat in Memphis. Johnson also sat out part of the Memorial, where Thomas’ dad, Mike, took his spot.

Mackay helped Fitzpatrick finish T-27 and solo third at back-to-back events—the Workday Invitational and the Memorial—hosted at Muirfield Village earlier this month.

Thomas, 27, is currently No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking. He is paired with Collin Morikawa and Hideki Matsuyama the first two rounds at TPC Southwind.
