Matt Minister Biography – Matt Minister Wiki
Matt Minister is a professional caddie on the PGA Tour. He is a caddie for Patrick Cantlay. Previously, he caddied for Sangmoon Bae, Nick Price, Chris Smith, Joe Durant, David Eger, Chip Beck, Eric Compton, Jeff Sluman and Chris Kirk.
In 2006, Hall of Famer Nick Price ran into caddie Matt Minister at the McArthur Club in Hobe Sound. Price was about to join the PGA Tour Champions and was looking for a caddie. Minister was, well, looking for a steady job.
They worked together for four years, and Price won four times on the 50-and-older circuit with Minister on his bag. The victories paid Minister’s bills and, more importantly, got the Rev — his nickname because of his surname — back in the game as a tour caddie.
After Price retired in 2010, Minister started working for promising South Korean Sangmoon Bae in 2012. They won twice together and Bae played for captain Price in the 2015 Presidents Cup. But Bae’s career was put on hold when he had to fulfill his military obligation.
Minister bounced around between a half-dozen players before he started working for Chris Kirk. Minister had made travel arrangements to caddie for Kirk at Pebble Beach in 2017 — until Kirk told him he was using another caddie.
As fate would have it, Minister got a call from a player agent representing Cantlay, who had been sidelined more than two years with a back injury and whose caddie had died in a car accident. The agent wanted to know if Minister would work for Cantlay … at Pebble Beach.

Matt Minister, caddie for Patrick Cantlay, shared some thoughts with The Caddie Network about their win at the 2022 BMW Championship.
“I would imagine it’s a lot of short-game work because the Bermuda rough is so difficult, and the sand is a lot different than last week’s sand. So doing a lot of short-game practice and a lot of putting because you’re also on a different type of grass,” Minister said.
“The rest of it, as far as course management and your mind management, will be much the same as last year and I think that’s also good for Patrick and myself, having gone through it.
“It should make it more comfortable. I won’t say easy because it’s not easy.”
Minister also revealed an equipment change just ahead of the BMW.
“That was a new driver, a new head, so I think it was a little concerning how he might drive the ball,” he said. “But he drove it unbelievably, maybe a little bit further.”
