HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – Eugene Egdorf, the Houston-based attorney who is helping to represent the caddies in their lawsuit against the PGA, told SportsRadio 610 Friday that PGA executives are encouraging players to fire their caddies involved in the lawsuit.
“It was even suggested, I’m told, at the Champions Tour player meeting last night that the Tour officials suggested all players they should fire any caddie that’s involved in the case,” Egdorf said.
“Frankly, I ‘m just offended that these guys are trying to interfere with the livelihoods of these caddies.”
The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday representing 82 caddies to seek compensation for wearing tour sponsors on their bibs during tournaments.
Egdorf told “The Triple Threat” on SportsRadio 610 it looks like more caddies will join the cause, but he made clear the lawsuit is not asking for a dime from the players.
