Herman Mitchell


Inducted in 1999

Herman Mitchell was a longtime professional caddie best known for his work alongside Lee Trevino.

A native of Little Rock, AR, Mitchell began caddying in 1957. He began his work with Trevino in 1977, marking the start of one of the game’s most iconic player-caddie combinations. Mitchell was on the bag for Trevino when he won his final major championship at the 1984 PGA Championship. He also worked for Trevino for several years on the PGA TOUR Champions and in other senior championships. The two parted ways in the mid-90s when Mitchell’s health began to decline. Mitchell died in 2004.

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