On Tuesday a group of more than 80 caddies filed a class-action federal lawsuit against the PGA Tour, seeking compensation for being forced to wear bibs that are plastered with sponsored logos and serving as “human billboards.” Later that day, Commissioner Tim FInchem addressed the media and spoke about the issue. Then, during the Tour’s annual Player Meeting at Torrey Pines, the site of this week’s Farmers Insurance Open, he addressed the topic briefly.
