Saverio Macaluso


Inducted in 2003

Saverio “Mac” Macaluso caddied for more than 80 years at iconic Oakmont Country Club near Pittsburgh, PA and became a favorite of members and professionals alike.


Macaluso began caddying at Oakmont at age eight to help his family. Over his storied tenure at the club, he caddied for the likes of Jack Nicklaus and Babe Zaharias during several major championships contested at Oakmont. He also looped for Dave Marr when he won the 1965 PGA Championship at nearby Laurel Valley Country Club. He retired from caddying in 2005 and died in 2007 at age 90.


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