He simply goes by the name of Bubby and has been a caddie at the Greenbrier on and off for 45 years. Bubby started caddying when he was 14 as a kid growing up in Greenbrier County. Since then he has become one of the most trusted caddies at the resort. Bubby has been on the course with one some of the biggest names in golf he has helped the likes of Sam Snead, Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson around the course.
Watson the golf pro emeritus at the Greenbrier who visits each year has even grown to trust Bubby with the nuances of the Greenbrier courses.
"Mr. Watson when we go out there will holla and say Bub what do you think and I will help him. A lot of the time when we go out he will tell them, you better listen to Bubby he has been here longer than I have, they trust me." said Bubby.
Bubby gained a lot of his knowledge about the course from working at night on the grounds. He knew before they ever put yardage markers in the distance from each sprinkler head to the green.
