Caddie Damon Green is relishing the prospect of working alongside Ollie Schniederjans during 2019.
Green had spent over a decade on the bag of Zach Johnson before the duo parted ways earlier this month, with the 58-year-old admitting at the time that he was ‘shocked’ by the decision, as he had helped Johnson to major glory at the 2007 Masters and the Open Championship in 2015.
However, Green has not been out of work for long, as he will now team up with world number 179 Schniederjans heading into the New Year.
Schniederjans enjoyed a breakthrough year on the PGA Tour in 2017, finishing runner-up at the Wyndham Championship and the RBC Heritage, but he only managed three top-10 finishes from 27 starts on the tour last season.
The 25-year-old will be hoping a change in caddie can help turn his fortunes around and Green is certainly looking forward to the link-up, which is scheduled to begin with the Sony Open in January.
“When I talked to Ollie [Thursday] night, he was overjoyed,” Green told Golfweek. “It’s good to feel that way, feel like you can help and you’re wanted. It reenergizes you.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
