Golf Caddie
Golf caddies carry golfers' golf bags, or pull the carts that hold the golf bags.

They advise players, if asked to do so, on the selection of the proper club for the stroke or peculiarities of the golf course. Caddies also locate driven balls and hold the marker out of the cup while the player putts.

Top-notch or professional golfers often require caddies who are excellent golfers themselves. The work of golf caddies can be done on a part-time or full-time basis.
