Fluff Cowan got hurt caddying at the Canadian Open. He slipped and fell so it may be a knee or leg issue.

But that's not the storyline. It's that Fluff is 76 and has been caddying for 40 years.

For a number of pros including Eldrick himself.

Cowan has been carrying 50 plus pounds on tour several hours a day, five or six days a week almost year round. In all types of weather.

And the golf bags were a lot heavier when he started out, so he has racked up some serious mileage on the body odometer over his career.

I'm not as old as Fluff and it's all I can do to wrangle a few bags of rock salt or Sakrete every now and then.
