Inducted in 1999
Alfie Fyles was a longtime caddie at Royal Birkdale, in Southport, England, who worked alongside golf legend Tom Watson in all five of Watson’s wins at The Open Championship.
In the 1970s and 1980s, few player-caddie combinations were as potent as Watson and Fyles. Together the pair won The Open Championship in 1975, 1977, 1980, 1982 and 1983. Fyles also was on the bag for Watson when he made a miraculous run but came up just short at the 2009 Open Championship.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Fyles earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
