Pro Golfer Viktor Hovland Would Rather Caddie Than Party

Get yourself a friend like Viktor!

Would you rather celebrate your $3.6 million win or caddie for your college roommate? The answer is obvious, right? Well, not for Viktor Hovland. Hovland made golf news headlines this weekend after winning the Memorial on Sunday and the next day caddying for Zach Bauchou, his ex-roommate, for 36 holes.

This all started Saturday evening when the duo went out to dinner. According to golf rumors, Bauchou jokingly asked Hovland if he was willing to carry him on Monday. Without any hesitation, Hovland said he would be happy to caddie for him at Monday’s invitational. That’s just the type of guy Hovland is. “If he says he’s going to do something, he’ll do it,” Bauchou explained.

The two of them were teammates back in 2018 at Oklahoma State where they won the NCAA title. The other golfers on that team included Matthew Wolff and Austin Eckroat. Hovland and Bauchou were not only teammates but also roommates during Hovland’s freshman year.

That is, however, the end of the good news. There is no happy ending to this wholesome story because Zach Bauchou did not qualify after 36 holes posting a 72 at the Lakes Golf and Country Club, and making only one birdie in his round of 76 at Brookside. Bauchou is still playing mini-tours, hoping to get on the PGA Tour himself.

Nonetheless, this says a lot about the character of a guy like Viktor Hovland. The dude has the biggest win in his career, brings in $3.6 million dollars, and can’t even go out and celebrate because the next day he has to caddie to help out his boy attempt to make the PGA Tour? Now, I don’t know about all of you guys but I don’t know if I have any friends that after they won $3.6 million they’d come carry me within 24 hours.

Hovland will next be in action June 8 with the kick-off of the RBC Canadian Open and I don’t know about all of you, but I will definitely be tuning in on the open. Mostly now that PGA news is on fire with the news of the LIV Golf merge.
