Spieth’s Caddie Greller Would’ve Finished 39th On Tour Money list
Sometimes life shines upon you. Like, maybe you were a high school math teacher bringing in about $50,000 before a chance hookup with a promising pro golfer. And then, the pro goes crazy winning events and pocketing mountains of loot.
Michael Greller no doubt sits back at times and wonders how he won the caddie lottery. I know I would…
Anyway, Golf.com outlines what Greller earned this year given the typical payouts by their bosses.
- The Open Championship: T4, earned $460,377
- WGC-Bridgestone Invitational: T10, earned $149,500
- PGA Championship: 2nd, earned $1,080,000
- The Barclays: CUT
- Deutsche Bank Championship: CUT
- BMW Championship: T13, earned $173,250
- Tour Championship: 1st, earned $1,485,000 + $10 million FedEx Cup bonus
Assuming Greller earned the typical tip, he brought home $1,275,453 in just those last five events where he would be receiving a payout. Add that to his previous earnings up to the Open Championship, and he’s brought in a cool $2.14 million this year.
That would put him 39th on the Tour money list between Russell Henley and ahead of Phil Mickelson. He definitely had a better year than either player.
