From Caddie to Brother: Tim Mickelson’s Retirement from Caddying and New Focus on Family Life

Phil announces Tim Mickelson’s retirement as his brother’s caddie

Mickelson’s younger brother, Tim Mickelson, has announced his retirement from caddying after nearly seven years on the job. Tim replaced Bones Mackay in June 2017 and helped Phil win three times on the PGA Tour, including the 2021 PGA Championship. However, with his brother’s new partner Maranda and their growing family, Tim has decided to focus more time on his own life.

Tim first took on the role of caddie for his brother in 2017 when he left his job as a college golf coach at Arizona State to become Jon Rahm’s agent. During that time, he helped Phil achieve much success both on and off the course. Although their time together was cut short when Phil joined LIV Golf two years ago, Tim remains grateful for the memories they shared together.

Mickelson expressed gratitude for Tim’s contributions to his career and personal life over the past eight years. He thanked him for being a loyal friend and confidant who always had his back no matter what challenges they faced together. With Tim’s retirement, Mickelson will need to find a new caddie to help him compete at the highest level once again. The next event in LIV Golf is scheduled for next week at Doral outside of Miami, but it remains uncertain who will be carrying Mickelson’s bags moving forward.
