Tiger Woods is set to debut a new looper at this week’s Genesis Invitational, according to Golfweek. The veteran caddie Lance Bennett will be on the bag at Riviera, marking Woods’ first tournament since parting ways with longtime caddie Joe LaCava.
Bennett, who has previously caddied for Matt Kuchar, Sungjae Im and Davis Riley, among others, currently works for rookie Adrien Dumont de Chassart. However, he isn’t expected to be a permanent solution for Woods’ bag as his business partner Rob McNamara took over the role at the Hero World Challenge and PNC Championship.
Woods mutually parted ways with LaCava after their 14-year partnership came to an end in November. The former world No. 1 player had been looking for a new caddie ever since then and has been testing out different options before settling on Bennett as his choice for this week’s tournament.
