I am going to say this should be allowed. Use your caddy for support when throwing! As a dude of 6 feet 5 inches, I would love to have a 300 pound caddy who I could hold for support to lean over my lie. I could probably get my throwing hand an extra 4 feet closer to the basket.


Wear an extra long long-sleeve shirt and maybe even 6 feet!


Use the existing towel exemption and then they won't have to write the long sleeve shirts into the rules.

Can I place the caddy directly behind my lie and stand on their shoulders? This would be especially helpful at USDGC if I got stuck behind the bamboo fence.

This could also be helpful for casual water or dangerous lies.

There are times I'd just let the caddy make the shot for me. That must be allowed, too.

What a think tank.

You're giving other think tanks I've ever come across, way, way too much credit.

QA16: Using an Object Behind the Lie for Support

Q: Can I hold onto a branch or other object behind my lie while putting?


A: Holding on to something behind your lie is not prohibited by the rules, provided that the object is in-bounds. It also must not be moved, since you are required to take the stance that results in the least movement of obstacles on the course. You are not allowed to hold onto another person for support, as that person is not part of the course.Applicable rules: 803.04 Stance, Subsequent to Teeing Off; 803.05
Obstacles and Relief

This could result in some very interesting stances.
