PGA Tour caddie Brent Henley, who has caddied on the circuit for more than 20 years, has revealed he was hired and fired by a PGA Tour player all within the space of 24 hours.
Henley is the younger brother of Kip Henley who used to caddie for the likes of Vijay Singh and Stewart Cink.
Brent has not identified the PGA Tour pro in question, or whether or not the axing happened at The Players Championship this week, but given he dropped the tweet on Thursday this week there is strong evidence to suggest it did occur at TPC Sawgrass.
One follower pressed Henley to name the player, but he said that he would not be disclosing such information.
I got hired and fired in less than 24 hours!! Never caddied 1 hole for the guy. That is a first. . In @KipHenley words “caddying ain’t easy”.— Brent Henley (@BRENTHENLEY) March 10, 2022
"I got hired and fired in less than 24 hours," tweeted Brent.
"Never caddied 1 hole for the guy. That is a first [laughter emojis].
"In Kip Henley words, "caddying ain't easy."
Brent has previously caddied for the likes of four-time PGA Tour winner Woody Austin.
He also picked up a win in his first ever tournament as a PGA Tour caddie when helping Garrett Willis over the line at the 2001 Tucson Open.
Henley last year hit out at United States athletes taking the knee at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
"Does any other country but the USA have athletes kneeling during their national anthem?" Henley wrote on Twitter last summer.
"No other country has more foreign born citizens than us. Something is not adding up."

"Cheating happens almost every single round," said Kip.
"If people think there's no cheating out there, they're crazy. Some of it's intentional, some of it's just ignorance.
