Sam “Killer” Foy was the longtime caddie for three-time major champion Hale Irwin.
A native of Houston, TX, Foy began working as a caddie at Houston Country Club while still in high school. There, Foy was introduced to several of the area’s promising young golfers and got his first professional caddying job working for Rex Baxter in 1963. He caddied briefly for Bob Rosburg before being hired by Hale Irwin in 1968. Together, Foy and Irwin won the 1979 U.S. Open at Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio. Foy and Irwin worked together for 15 years. Following his retirement from the professional ranks, Foy continued to caddie in the Houston area.
For his work promoting the important role of caddies in the game of golf, Foy earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
