Golf Family of the Year: (2014)
In 2014, Worth's family was honored in New York, New York as "Golf Family of the Year" by the Metropolitan Golf Writer's Association, for his family's contribution to the game.
Both of my boys are playing championship level high school golf. There was a clear gap in their approach in how they were preparing for tournaments, and how they were managing their games around different courses. In fact, I observed it was the last component needed to reach more consistent success in their games. This certainly appears to be a gap for most high-level high school and college players.
The good news is we found Worth Blackwelder, a caddie on the LPGA Tour for decades. Worth has the patience and desire to help young players learn a tour-like approach.
Worth spent the entire practice round mapping out the course and teaching the boys how to think and prepare for each hole. In fact, he even prepared a tour-like yardage book for use during the real tournament.
I have never seen the boys more prepared, and as a result more confident to play in the 2019-Kentucky Junior Amateur. The result for both boys; Alexander shot even par for both days and finished 8th and his younger brother Cameron shot 8 over and finished top-25.
Better yet, this skill is now utilized by the boys in all practice rounds. This is a skill set I could have never taught them, and an approach that will be used for years to come.

We feel fortunate to have given our daughter the opportunity to benefit from Worth's years of experience as a caddie on the LPGA Tour. His insights into preparation, course management, and the mental aspects of the game have been invaluable to our daughter's progress as a competitive golfer.
