The Swede has split with his new caddie Scott Vail after just six tournaments together
Henrik Stenson is seeking a new caddie after he and his current bagman have split after just six events. Stenson and Scott Vail split after the WGC-Mexico Championship, which was the fourth-straight poor result for the duo.
Vail had been on Brandt Snedeker’s bag for 12 years prior to joining up with Stenson in November, after the Iceman had been working with Englishman Gareth Lord for five years. It appears that his new partnership with Scott Vail hasn’t quite worked out.
In the short spell with Vail, he has had two fourth places (at the Indonesian Masters and Hero World Challenge) before a run of MC-MC-MC-T54 so far in 2019. “We had two events on the back end of last year, three in the Middle East and [the WGC-Mexico Championship], and we just sat down after Mexico and asked, ‘How does it feel?’” Stenson said.
“Neither one of us felt like we were the best fit for each other. We are all in good spirits. I really like him, but we just felt like we didn’t connect 100 percent.”
