Cape Town - Longtime caddie of two-time Major
winner Zach Johnson, Damon Green, is optimistic about the future, as he
embarks on a fresh journey with rising star Ollie Schniederjans.
Schniederjans made 27 appearances on the PGA Tour last season and finished among the top 10 on just three occasions.
It was somewhat of a disappointment, given the tremendous promise he had shown on tour the previous season.
Trust is a major component in any golfing relationship and Green is
confident that he and Schniederjans will development a good
understanding of what it is both of them are trying to achieve and how
they plan to achieve it.
Ultimately, the Sony Open will provide a reliable litmus test on just
how well this relationship is likely to function. If Schniederjans is
found wearing a hat of any kind, for example, we could very well be on
to something big.
"When I talked to Ollie (Thursday) night, he was overjoyed," Green told Golfweek.
"It's good to feel that way, feel like you can help and you're
wanted. It re-energises you," added Green, who was with Johnson for more
than a decade.
Together, Green and Johnson conquered Augusta and St. Andrews, entrenching the latter's status as one of the all time greats.
