Carl Jackson was one of the longest-serving caddies in the history of famed Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, GA.
Jackson began his career caddying at Augusta National in 1958. He first caddied in the Masters in 1961 at age 14 when he worked alongside Billy Burke. Though he briefly caddied for Bruce Devlin and Gary Player, Jackson is most well-known for his work alongside Ben Crenshaw. The two first worked together in 1976, and Jackson was on the bag for Crenshaw in 39 Masters, including Crenshaw’s victories in 1984 and 1995. Jackson caddied in every Masters tournament but one between 1961 and 2015.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Jackson earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
