PGA Tour golfer Steve Wheatcroft was not near the top of the leader board after three rounds at The Players Championship, so he decided to have a little fun during the event’s final round on Sunday.
Wheatcroft shot 68, 74, and 79 in the first three rounds and found himself in 70th place after Saturday’s action. It was obvious there wasn’t much for him to play for on the final day, so he decided to switch up caddies. With the tournament being held not far from Jacksonville, Wheatcroft called on someone familiar to fans of the Jaguars.
It's nothing against my normal caddy Mike, just trying to have a little fun tomorrow with a buddy seeing I'm in 70th place.— Steve Wheatcroft (@wheatiePGA) May 15, 2016
Scobee, who played for the Steelers last year, spent the first 11 years of his NFL career with the Jaguars. Here he is on Sunday with Wheatcroft:
Wheatcroft shot 73 on the final 18 holes, which was his best showing since the first round. Scobee may or may not have had anything to do with it, but kudos to Wheatcroft for thinking outside of the box and having a little fun on the final day after a disappointing first three rounds.
