Pete McCann


Inducted in 2003

Pete McCann worked for decades at Alpine Country Club in Demarest, NJ, and as a caddie on the PGA TOUR where he worked alongside legends of the game.


A native of rural Georgia, McCann grew up picking cotton before caddying at age 12. McCann caddied for Sam Snead when Snead won the first of his three Masters titles in 1949. He also caddied for golfing greats including Arnold Palmer, Lionel Hebert, Doug Ford and Doug Sanders. McCann even worked the celebrity circuit when he worked for stars like Joe Dimaggio, Jackie Gleason and Sammy Davis.


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