QUESTION | What tees you off?
ANSWER |Well obviously, it’s people who don’t tip. People who don’t know bartenders work basically off tips only. I don’t let it ruin my day, but it does tee me off!
What’s the best way to brighten a bad day? I just remind myself that there is always someone else whose day is worse than mine. Sometimes you just have to forget about the worst and think about the positive things in your life. If I’m having a bad day, and then I have to work, I always think of a happy place and leave my bad day at the door.
What’s the best way to fix a bad hair day? When I am having a bad hair day I just use some dry shampoo and throw it up in a cute messy bun.
What’s the best way to celebrate a hole-in-one?
I have yet to see my first hole in one in person. I’m sure when it happens I will be jumping around, screaming, and doing cartwheels.
How often do you caddy golf?
Caddying varies from month to month. Winters are cold, so only a few times a month. Usually the people from Canada or Boston who think 40 degrees is warm. Summers are hot so only a few times a week. Spring and Fall are the best and busiest months. I can caddy up to seven days a week.
What’s the best part about being a caddy? This is a hard question. I love everything about caddying. I love having the opportunity to caddy and experience the beauty of many different golf courses. As a Myrtle Beach Caddy Girl I get to travel to courses even outside of S.C. My boss, Meghan Tarmey, is an amazing woman. She keeps us busy all year with all kinds of odd jobs and perks. I have been able to travel and meet a ton of astonishing people. Guess I’m saying every part is the best.
Do you play golf, as well? Well...I try. Ha-ha. I received my first set of clubs about four years ago and went out as much as possible. Now that I caddy, I don’t get out on the courses to play much myself. I’d rather be making money, than spending money. But...at Tee’d Off Bar and Grill we have awesome live golf simulators. If you have not been yet, you need to come try. You use real golf clubs and golf balls. Any chance I get I have been using them to hopefully get my game back.
How about Putt-Putt? I am a putt-putt master! Cannot be beaten!
How many golfers ask you out for dinner? Only a few. Most guys are usually just asking for us to get a drink with the whole group. Most of the golfers I caddy for are large groups of friends just getting away for the week, and usually all happily married. It’s only when we get the bachelor parties that they start asking.
Is it easier to juggle golf balls or juggle men?
