Caddie Network - Article

This week, actor Michael O’Keefe — a man well-known to golf fans as Danny Noonan from the hit comedy "Caddyshack" — joins the show, along with PGA Tour caddie Kip Henley. O’Keefe recently caddied a couple of practice rounds at the U.S. Open and tells host T.J. Auclair that he’s hoping to land a bag at the upcoming Masters. He also provides some outstanding behind-the-scenes stories about the making of "Caddyshack" and explains why he didn’t embrace being Noonan until 27 years after the 1980 classic. He also mentions the respect he has for caddies and a whole lot more, including a fun exchange with Henley over a couple of Noonan-related tweets that Henley sent during the U.S. Open.
