Caddie Confidential: Zurich Classic format creates buzz, uncertainty Michael Collins via ESPN.com

Caddie: I’ve heard guys talking about it for two or three months since they decided [on the format]. Normally you’d never hear guys talking about New Orleans except for [complaining]. Everybody’s been pumped, for sure.

ESPN’s Caddie Confidential is always a fun read and this piece is no exception. So far it looks like the new format is as much a hit with the players as it is with the viewers. Anything that gets folks buzzing about the Thursday round of a non-major is a success in my book.
