I caught up with legendary looper Kip Henley on Monday afternoon who was still on cloud nine after the RSM Classic at Sea Island. Kip had been bouncing around the past three years because his former boss Brian Gay had been injured and he was recommended to Cook by a mutual friend. They started working together for the Web.com Tour Finals.
Kip reflects on the past few months and talks about Austin’s game and personality, along with their player-caddie relationship. And of course, he also shares insights on how impressed he is with Austin’s composure and maturity. I mean, this kid sounds like an all-around solid individual, not to mention really solid golfer.
Find out the funny nickname that Kip keeps wanting to call Austin.
Congrats and thanks again for the time. We’ll have to do it again at Kapalua — with more time when I’m prepared with my podcast gear and not in the doctor’s office’s waiting room with crappy reception, no less.
