Here is what I think:

1. Motivator
2. Listener
3. Ego massager
4. Bag carrier
5. Diver into water hazzard to grab clubs..if it gets thrown into it

6. And if the caddy is Steve, camera basher


But ......I seen some having to carry umbrella to shelter the golfer during rain........i think abit too over the board...

They must also rake the bunkers if not, the players will get fine.

I think the role of a very good Tour caddy can be better defined on things they don't do:

Play for the player. lol!

Maybe even happy ending for some golfers who engage female caddies.
