Linn Grant Caddie
Who is Linn Grant’s caddie? She had her father, James Grant, as her caddie at her first U.S. Women’s Open in 2018. Linn won the 2022 Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed with her boyfriend and caddie Pontus Samuelsson on the bag.
An accomplished amateur player himself, James was his daughter’s caddie at the 2018 U.S. Women’s Open. However, they did have one particular snafu that still makes them cringe. On the opening hole of the third round during the 2018 Open, James provided an incorrect yardage for his daughter, and she flew the green by some 20 yards. Her round — and tournament — unraveled from there.
“[I] had a really hard time to really trust him again,” Grant said. “I didn’t really recover from that. I don’t think he did, either. We’ll try to not put ourselves in that position again.”
Luckily, mending a caddie-player relationship is much easier when there is a daughter-father foundation beneath it. The two have since recovered from that incident.
