2020-2021 PGA TOUR CADDIE REGULATIONS

All players in PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions cosponsored tournaments shall employ caddies for all practice, Pro-Am and tournament rounds, though golf carts may occasionally be authorized by the PGA TOUR Champions Tournament Director for practice or Pro-Am rounds. Caddies shall be paid promptly. The fee is to be resolved early in the week between the player and caddie. The PGA TOUR shall determine who is eligible to be employed as a caddie. Players who wish to bring their own caddies to PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions cosponsored tournaments may do so. Players shall be responsible for the conduct and behavior of their caddies at tournaments.

The following shall be adhered to in all PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions cosponsored tournaments:

  2. Caddies shall wear uniforms and identification badges prescribed by the host tournament and PGA TOUR. In addition, all caddies are required to wear solid colored, Khaki-style long pants, which touch the top of the shoe, or solid-colored, knee-length, tailored shorts, or skorts and a collared shirt while on club property. T-shirts, jeans, culottes, skirts, shorts, capris, cut-off shorts, and cargo-style shorts are not permitted. Acceptable colors shall be determined at the discretion of the PGA TOUR Champions Tournament Director.

  16. Caddies may not capture or distribute any video, audio, or photograph on site at a tournament throughout tournament week (including on practice days) without written permission from the PGA TOUR.
