Cody Gribble inadvertently found his caddie

KAPALUA, Hawaii -- Bobby Hudson never expected to be in paradise this week. He didn’t think he’d still be caddieing for his former University of Texas teammate Cody Gribble, either.

Four months ago, Gribble was making his first start in his first year on the PGA Tour in Napa. The only problem? The event was the same week as the wedding of the daughter of his regular caddie, Mark Huber.

In stepped Hudson, who had caddied a few times for Gribble before but had mostly been bouncing around the mini-tour circuit and contemplating giving up golf for a normal job. Gribble tied for eighth, so he tapped Hudson again for the following week in Mississippi.

You can guess what happened next.

Gribble shot 20-under 268 over four days, including a second-round 63, and won by four. Hudson has been on the bag ever since.
