Since parting ways in a very odd and public way with Steve Williams, a lot of speculation has surrounded Tiger Woods with who he would hire as his new bag man after the long stint he and Williams had.
At the PGA Championships back in August, Woods turned to long-time friend Bryon Bell to serve as his interim caddy until a true replacement could be found.
The wait is seemingly over.
Announcing through his website on Sunday afternoon, Woods tabbed Dustin Johnson's caddy Joe LaCava as his new bag man.
"This was an important decision, and I wanted to think about it carefully." Woods said through his website. "Also, out of deference for the FedEx Cup Playoffs, I decided to wait until they were concluding to have substantive talks. We then spoke to Joe and came to an agreement."
LaCava, had been the longtime caddie for Fred Couples before parting ways (mutually) to take on Johnson's bag this season on Tour.
"I'm excited to be working with Tiger," LaCava said. "I contacted Tiger and Mark because this is a unique opportunity to be a part of something very special. Tiger and I have been friends for a very long time, and I know what he can do."
LaCava will become the third full-time caddie for Tiger Woods since turning pro in 1996.
Woods also went on to say via his website that he contacted Johnson directly after LaCava had informed him of his decision to go with Woods moving forward.
Johnson's agent David Winkle said, "Needless to say, Dustin and I were very surprised, as they have enjoyed a great relationship and have been very successful together."
"Nonetheless, we think highly of Joe, both as a caddie and a person, which is why he was hired in the first place. We wish him nothing but the best with his new employer."
Late Sunday afternoon, Woods posted on his Twitter account, "Joe LaCava is an outstanding caddie and I have known him since I was an amateur, really looking forward to having him on the bag."
The two will have their first public appearance next month in California at the Frys.com Open October 6-9.
