Carl Jackson  

Retired Augusta Natl. Masters Caddy

Jackson started caddying at Augusta National in 1958 and caddied for the first time at the Masters Tournament at the age of 14 in 1961, caddying for Billy Burke. In 1964, he caddied for Bruce Devlin, who finished fourth that year and in 1970 for Gary Player when he finished third. He first caddied for Crenshaw in 1976, when Crenshaw finished second, and continued to caddie for Crenshaw at the Masters until 1983 when Augusta National dropped the requirement that players use its caddies. Crenshaw kept Jackson on as caddie. Crenshaw won the Masters Tournament twice while Jackson was his caddie, once in 1984 and then again in 1995. Jackson was supposed to caddie for Crenshaw in the 2015 Masters, but had to pull out on Thursday morning due to sore ribs. Jackson's younger brother, Bud, caddied for Crenshaw instead. Jackson greeted and gave an emotional hug to Crenshaw after Crenshaw finished the 18th hole on Friday. Crenshaw announced the 2015 Masters, his 44th, would be his last.
