PGA Tour caddie gets his boss amazing—and embarrassing—present for playing in his first Masters

November 19, 2020

Usually, it's the PGA Tour pro that gets his caddie a present for his service. Whether it's a nice FedEx Cup bonus at the end of a long season or the keys to a new car won from a sponsored event. But after J.T. Poston made his Masters debut last week, his looper threw him for a loop by getting him something money can't buy.

Thanks to Aaron Flener, Nov. 18, 2020, was J.T. Poston Day in the pro's hometown of Hickory, N.C. Flener shared the proclamation from Hickory mayor Hank Guess (great name) on Wednesday morning:

But even better was when Poston saw it in person—along with a cake made special for the occasion:

"Oh, my, god," a surprised—and slightly embarrassed Poston says in the video. "I might throw this at you."

All kidding aside, it was a pretty cool gesture from the caddie with the best singing voice on tour. In case you can't read the fine print, the letter lists Poston's playing accomplishments from his high school days to his bogey-free first PGA Tour win last year to his first Masters appearance this past week.

And when someone asked how to properly celebrate the day, Flener had the perfect response:

Well played, Aaron. Hopefully, you sang him a song as well.
