A few months back, caddie Todd Montoya (Brian Stuard) entered a raffle for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Naturally, Montoya forgot he entered that raffle. He was reminded in a big way two weeks ago while in Napa, California for the Safeway Open when he received a call notifying him that he won two of the raffle items: 1. a pre-paid credit card for $1,000; 2. The grand prize -- a $505,000 dream home. What?!

In this episode of The Caddie Network's "Under the Strap," Montoya tells host T.J. Auclair about all the emotions that went through his head when he learned of his good fortune. He also discusses his career as a caddie dating back to 2001, his great nicknames and some hilarious on-course stories -- like the player who once yelled at his caddie for... sweating.
