Caddie Hall of Fame

Johnny Miller

 

Inducted in 2016


A two-time major champion, Johnny Miller began caddying at age 12 at San Francisco Golf Club, San Francisco, CA, with a goal to earn his own money and be independent. He also ended up having many great experiences including caddying for the area’s most influential and successful leaders and even entertainer Bing Crosby several times.

Miller has said that caddying gave him the opportunity to sharpen his golf skills. Because of his talent as a promising junior golfer, he was awarded a merit junior membership to The Olympic Club for the first time in the club's history. For Miller, caddying and his love of golf were intertwined as a youth. Two memorable things he has shared that should leave no doubt of his caddying skills: one, that in all those years of caddying, he never lost a ball; and two, that he never caddied for someone he couldn’t defeat on the golf course.

For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Miller earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
