C.T. Pan uses fan, 2 other caddies after ‘Fluff’ Cowan takes fall at PGA Tour event



HAMILTON — Mike “Fluff” Cowan, the caddie for Taiwanese golfer C.T. Pan, took a fall at Hamilton Golf and Country Club during the final round at the RBC Canadian Open Sunday.

This forced Cowan, a popular caddie on the PGA Tour, to exit and a series of people to caddie for Pan the rest of the round.

It started with a fan from the gallery, Paul Emerson. Wearing a Masters T-shirt, Emerson slipped under the ropes, was handed a caddie bib and grabbed the bag. From holes five through nine, Michael Campbell, who is a part of caddie services, relieved Emerson, a PGA Tour spokesperson confirmed. As the group made the turn, Al Riddell, caddie for PGA Tour golfer Paul Barjon, arrived on the scene and took over for the rest of the round.

 

Sportsnet’s Adam Stanley was the first to report the news of Riddell being the fourth caddie for Pan. Cowan is expected to be fine after the fall.

Cowan, 76, started working with Pan full time in May. He was the long-time caddie for Jim Furyk from 1999 to 2024. Cowan also caddied Tiger Woods for his first major win at the 1997 Masters.

Pan, 32, has one win on the PGA Tour at the 2019 RBC Heritage.
