Who is Todd Gjesvold?

Todd Gjesvold is currently the caddie for Russell Henley, and the pair have been together for quite some time now. However, when exactly they started working together is not clearly known. But according to Golf Monthly, it was around the end of 2016, going into 2017, that Gjesvold took Henley’s bag. 

However, there is not much information available on Todd Gjesvold out there. But here’s some basic info: Todd is a native of Omak, a city located in the foothills of the Okanogan Highlands in north-central Washington. He attended Oregon State University between 1986 and 1988. 

Meanwhile, it is also believed that Todd is a caddie at the Pebble Beach Company, which means he knows the famous California golf course very well. Moreover, Russell was a co-leader after 36 holes at the 2021 U.S. Open with Todd Gjesvold as his caddie.
