Bryson DeChambeau SPLITS with caddie Tim Tucker ahead of Rocket Mortgage Classic

Bryson DeChambeau has split with his long-term caddie Tim Tucker ahead of this week's Rocket Mortgage Classic.

No Laying Up first broke the news on social media earlier today, citing that DeChambeau and Tucker had been together in the practice rounds at Detroit Golf Club but have parted ways before the first round on Thursday.

No Laying Up believes someone from DeChambeau's sponsor Cobra Puma Golf will be stepping in to caddie for the defending champion this week. 

Phil Mickelson has already had his say on the matter. 

 

 

Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner has since confirmed the news. 

 

 

There will no doubt be more on this story over the coming days. 

DeChambeau has known Tucker for the best part of 12 years. 

The pair began working together at the 2016 Memorial Tournament until the middle of the 2017 season, before DeChambeau briefly switched to the services of Micah Fugitt.

That partnership, however, lasted less than six months and Tucker was back once again on the bag of DeChambeau.

Tucker has been on the bag for all of DeChambeau's eight PGA Tour victories, including his maiden major triumph at the 2020 US Open. 

DeChambeau once said of Tucker: "I think the biggest thing is that he’s a calming effect on me. He’s super easy and cool and collected. Whatever I say, it doesn’t bother him at all. We just go out there and have a good time."
