Moving ahead of the caddie life

This was the last time Pontus caddied for Linn, which he gave up to concentrate on his career. About this separation, Grant had previously said: “It’s a bit of a mixed feeling. Boring of course and not being able to travel together every week and experience everything together. At the same time, it feels fun to take a new step and start working with someone who is already a professional caddie.”
