Rory McIlroy’s caddie just pocketed a smooth $1 million

October 26th, 2016

“Professional golf caddie” might be one of the most sneaky lucrative careers around. It can be tough on the lower end of the spectrum, but if you land an average tour pro or better, it won’t take long to accrue a tidy sum. Just ask Jordan Spieth’s caddie. Or Rory McIlroy’s, for that matter. Caddies usually get between a five and seven percent cut of players’ earnings, according to Golf Digest. Rory’s gets a little more — about 10 percent — which proved especially fruitful this year after Rory walked away with the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus prize. Via the Associated Press: Tour caddies typically get a stipend for the week and then a percentage of the earnings up to 10 percent for a victory. McIlroy said he paid his caddie 10 percent from the $9 million he took home that day from his FedEx Cup bonus, and 10 percent from the Tour Championship earnings. “So the total was $1.05 million,” McIlroy said. “I think he was quite happy.” I bet he was.
