Caddy Races at the Phoenix Waste Management Open

It's one of the most fun tournaments of the year, with the most fun hole in all of golf, the 16th.  Without a doubt, the Phoenix Waste Management Open is a highlight of the PGA Tour schedule.  It is fun, loud and irreverent, and if you can't handle it, then you can take your deer antler spray and go home.

Adding to the fun at the 16th this year?  Caddy races.  The game is simple.  The caddies race to the green from the tee, and the first to touch the green wins.  Keep an eye out for it on the TV coverage this weekend, and you will see some epic dashes to the finish.  This video is pretty funny (especially toward the end) - Kevin Na's caddy really goes all out for the win.  Gotta love it.  You won't see this at Augusta, but it is part of what makes this tournament one of the highlights of the golfing year.  No doubt some cash will exchange hands in the frat party-like stands as a result of the guys in the bibs doing their mad scramble to the green!
