Raleigh Native, Pro Golfer Greyson Murray Fires his Caddie… In the Middle of the Wells Fargo Championship

After sliding down the leaderboard and falling out of contention at the Wells Fargo Championship, Grayson Murray decided to part ways with his caddie – mid-round.

Murray, and his caddie Mike Hicks, got into an altercation on the ninth hole Sunday in the final round at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington. Hicks then dropped the bag and handed his smock to a replacement caddie selected by Murray from outside the ropes.

According to sources, the replacement caddie was a friend of Murray named Alex.

The altercation came following a bogey on No. 8 that sent Murray to 1-over for the tournament. Murray then bogeyed Nos. 11, 15 and 18 to finish the event at plus-4.

Murray was 1-over in 62-plus holes with Hicks and 3-over in 9-plus holes working alone.

The Raleigh-native Murray shot an opening-round 67 and entered the weekend just two shots off the lead. He reached 7-under at one point, but a 76 in the third round and further stumbles Sunday took him off the map.
