Peter Lynch


Inducted in 2023

Peter Lynch, one of the most successful money managers in Wall Street history, was inducted into the Caddie Hall of Fame at the Western Golf Association's 2023 Green Coat Gala.


“We take great pride in welcoming Peter Lynch – a remarkable person who has achieved tremendous professional success after getting his start as a caddie – to the Caddie Hall of Fame,” said Joe Desch, WGA chairman. “We are privileged to honor Peter’s outstanding career as well as his dedication to giving back in support of youth caddies.”


Lynch caddied at Brae Burn Country Club in West Newton, Massachusetts, which paved the way for him to receive a Francis Ouimet Fund Scholarship to attend Boston College. He also served as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army and earned his MBA from the Wharton School of Business. Lynch would eventually go on to manage the Magellan Fund at Fidelity – the best performing fund in the world under his leadership from 1977-1990.


He has also served as president of the Lynch Foundation and vice chairman of Fidelity Management & Research Company. In 2010, he received the Ouimet Fund’s Richard F. Connolly, Jr. Distinguished Service Award for his dedication and commitment to supporting youth caddies.


“I loved being a caddie,” Lynch said. “There aren’t many jobs where you can have that much responsibility as a young person, and it’s so important. I learned respect, and I also learned what characteristics adults admired. Being a caddie helped me get my job at Fidelity.”


For using caddying as a stepping stone to professional success, Peter Lynch earned a place in the Caddie Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who support caddying.
