Watch Shane Lowry’s NSFW shock at C.T. Pan’s wild number of caddies

All things considered, C.T. Pan had a pretty nice weekend. He shot one over on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish T-35 and got to play four rounds at Hamilton Golf Club in Ontario. Most importantly, however, he made quite a few new friends, which is what it’s all about.

Over 10 holes during his final round, Pan went through four caddies. It was a revolving door of loopers with the Taiwanese pro as the only constant.

This is a ridiculous run that even shocked fellow golfer (who’s seen it all) Shane Lowry. The Irishman has won a major and a Ryder Cup, yet he can’t believe what he’s witnessing on the course.

“Fourth caddie? That’s a f***ing record now!” Lowry exclaimed after meeting Pan’s fourth caddie, Al Riddell. He needed to shake this new looper's hand he was so taken aback.

After his regular caddie, Mike "Fluff" Cowan, went down with an injury, Pan rotated through multiple fans who wanted to help until a savior came along. Ridell, Paul Barjon’s regular caddie, stepped in after the patrons got their respective turns to finish out the unusual day. Before Ridell filled in, it even looked like Pan’s wife was going to get a turn on the bag.

It was a hell of a weekend for caddies from Pan’s plethora to Robert MacIntyre winning with his dad caddieing to the news that two generations of LaCavas will loop at the upcoming U.S. Open.

Lowry loves an F-bomb here and there, but we can’t really argue with the reasoning behind this one. Four caddies in one day has to be a record of some sort. We hope “Fluff” is alright and back on the bag soon enough, but this is certainly tremendous content.
