Henry 'Gado' Rice


Inducted in 1999

Henry “Gado” Rice caddied professionally for almost 48 years and is best known for his work alongside the great Canadian and PGA TOUR player George Knudson, with whom he won back-to-back PGA TOUR events in 1968. Between 1961-1972, the Knudson-Rice team won eight PGA TOUR Championships, five Canadian PGA Championships and the 1968 World Cup Championship. Rice also caddied for PGA TOUR players Mark Brooks, with whom he won a PGA Championship in 1996, Jodie Mudd, Gay Brewer, Keith Fergus and Tiger Woods.

Known for his knowledge of the game, the golf swing and course management, Rice was also a teacher to many younger caddies on the PGA TOUR and at private clubs during his career.

For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Henry “Gado” Rice earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
