Jerry “Dee” Darden was a longtime caddie on the LPGA Tour who worked alongside some of the most accomplished female golfers in the game’s history. Darden got his start in caddying in 1976 when he attended an LPGA tournament and fell in love with the game. He caddied for LPGA Hall of Fame golfers Beth Daniel and Nancy Lopez. Darden also was an accomplished photographer. In 1994, 'Inside the Ropes,' a coffee table book of Darden's LPGA photos, was published. Darden died in 2011 at age 82.
