We know how Rory Mcllroy will start his 2018 on the course, and now we also know who will be carrying the bag.
According to a report in the Guardian, Rory has decided to keep friend Harry Diamond on the bag permanently. Diamond had stepped in for Mcllroy after he and longtime caddie parted ways after his T-4 finish at The Open.
Diamond is a childhood friend of Rory and was also the best man at his wedding. At the time, Mcllroy had said that he wanted to avoid an “awkward spell” with a new caddie, so he brought in Diamond for seven events to close out the year.
Now though, Diamond will be on the bag on a full-time basis as Rory makes another run at the career Grand Slam.
Rory has already announced the early part of his 2018 schedule leading up to Augusta. It includes Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Pebble Beach, Riviera, the Honda Classic, the Valspar in Tampa, and Bay Hill.
