Caddies are an integral part of the game, and it’s no different on the LIV Golf Invitational Series.

And like the players, loopers on the Saudi-backed breakaway tour are handsomely rewarded for their efforts.

Last month, thanks to an increase in prize money, caddies’ pay reached record levels with Cam Smith’s bagman making more than $210,000 from his Open victory.

But on the LIV Series, it’s a whole different ball game – so much so that they will take home, on average, 171% more than they did at St Andrews in July.

With a top payout of $4million for the player winning the individual contest at The International in Boston this week, the winning caddie gets a 10% cut. That leaves them with $400,000, according to research carried out by AceOdds.

For the winning caddie, this one tournament will earn them roughly the same as the highest-paid bagmen made in 2021.

Even those finishing further down the leaderboard stand to make a tidy sum. End the week with your player 48th out of 48? You’ll still earn $6,000 – a 5% cut of the £120,000 payout.
