David Eller has been awarded the prestigious Caddy of the Year award at this week’s HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore.
The American looper was voted by his fellow peers for the annual HSBC award following a year which saw huge success on the bag for Jennifer Kupcho in 2022. This included a major win at The Chevron Championship and wins at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give and Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational.
“I feel very fortunate indeed to get this recognition. I was a bit overwhelmed. It was unexpected and such a special moment,” said Eller.
“I’ve learnt a lot from the veteran caddies out who have helped me out over the years and shown me the ropes,” he added. “I’m very grateful for that and to get that recognition. Ultimately, I think what got me over the line would have been results on the course and Jennifer had a lot of success with a major and a couple of wins. It’s a nice recognition for all the work the caddies do out here week after week.”
Eller was awarded the much-coveted white caddie bib ahead of the third round of the HSBC Women’s World Championship at Sentosa on Saturday.
He is now on the bag for Ryann O’Toole with the pair kicking off 2023 with two top-20 finishes to date.
