March 7, 2019, Matt Kuchar, cheap-gate caddie mess, and the beat goes on

The cheap-gate caddie mess continued…

Most are in agreement that Ortiz did not deserve that much, as he does not travel the circuit full time. But as Kuchar – who has over $47-million in career earnings—was on his way to another victory last month at the Sony Open, word began to circulate that Ortiz was unhappy with the payment. Social media started to run with it and earlier Golf.com spoke with Ortiz, who through a translator, said he had been offered an extra $15,000 but turned it down, believing he was entitled to a total of $50,000. 

Kuchar announced he paid the requested $50,000 saying, "In any transaction, all parties should come out feeling like they’ve won, and certainly, in David’s case he did not feel like he won in that situation and I needed to make that right. It’s as simple as that.’’
