Phil Mickelson’s Retiring Caddie Tim Mickelson: A Tale of Family, Golf and Leaving LIV Golf

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

Nearly seven years after his split with his longtime bagman Bones Mackay, Phil Mickelson announced that Tim Mickelson, who has been his caddie for the past eight years, is retiring to spend more time with his family. When Tim first took on the job of caddying for his brother, he had just left his position as the men’s college golf coach at Arizona State to become Jon Rahm’s agent. During that time, Tim helped Phil win three times on the PGA Tour, including the 2021 PGA Championship. Despite their success together, Phil and Tim decided to part ways in 2017 when Phil announced he was leaving LIV Golf. Since then, Tim has not seen much success in the Saudi-backed league and has decided to retire from caddying altogether to focus on spending time with his family as his brother’s life has evolved. His replacement has not yet been announced and LIV’s next event is scheduled for next week at Doral outside of Miami.
