The longtime caddie manager Pawtucket Country Club in Pawtucket, RI, Jim Tanner is credited with mentoring hundreds of caddies during his 62-year tenure at the club.
A native of Pawtucket, Tanner was a fixture at the club beginning in 1952 when he began caddying there as a boy. In honor of his dedication and service to his caddies, some of them began the JT Caddy Classic at Pawtucket Country Club, which is still played to this day.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Tanner earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
