Charlie Winton caddied at Gleneagles Golf Club in Auchterarder, Scotland, for more than 30 years and was known as an entertaining storyteller. His innate ability to spin a good yarn made him a popular caddie choice at the historic links course.
Winton’s fondness and knowledge of nature and wildlife also endeared him to many golfers he worked for during his lengthy career. His storytelling and understanding of the natural habitat were complemented by his knowledge of the golf swing and his always interesting, and at times novel, approach to navigating a player around the course. His caddie colleagues, caddie managers and local professionals had the greatest respect for his unique and inventive ways to play a round at Gleneagles. Winton was also a beloved teacher in the caddie instruction and development program he helped design and implement.
For his work promoting the important role of the caddie in the game of golf, Charlie Winton earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
