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.
