ESPN's Sobel Hired by Nationwide Tour Money Leader

October 15, 2007

Roland Thatcher has won twice on the Nationwide Tour this season and is that tour's money-leader this season. He's already guaranteed a spot on the PGA Tour next year. But after missing the cut in his last three tournaments, Thatcher has asked golf editor Jason Sobel to caddie for him this week at the Chattanooga Classic.

Sobel says he prepared for the job by watching "Caddyshack" a bunch of times and by carrying his own bag instead of riding in a cart during a few rounds of golf recently. He also got Thatcher to sit with him on ESPN's Hot Seat.
