RICHMOND, Texas – So who is the lucky caddie who can claim he walked Michelle Wie into the winner’s circle? Brendan Woolley. Or caddie No. 857.

All kidding aside, Woolley owes his good friend Patrick Tarrant a steak dinner at the very least. Tarrant, who had been on Wie’s bag since June, told Wie just before the Lorena Ochoa Invitational that he thought it might be a good idea for her to get started with a new caddie these last two events since he planned to return to his regular PGA Tour gig in 2010. Tarrant caddied for a now-injured Brett Wetterich the last seven seasons on the PGA Tour.

Tarrant contacted Woolley, a fellow New Zealander who worked with Wie in Kingsmill, and the pair immediately hit the jackpot in Mexico.

Many who have ridden the Wie caddie carousel stopped the ride on bad terms. Team Wie, however, insists this entire caddie exchange was an amicable parting. Tarrant held true to his word with Wetterich, and Woolley cashed in.

Woolley and Wie have agreed to work together through 2010.
