Former PGA of America President Jim Remy Now on the Bag

Back9 Ambassador Jim Remy gave up his duties as president of the PGA of America nearly two years ago, but he remains an active figure at golf events worldwide, especially at the PGA’s largest tournaments.

So it’s no surprise he’s present at The Golf Club at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich., this week for the Senior PGA Championship, the second of five majors on the senior circuit in 2014. But Remy isn’t in town to shake hands and watch the action. He’ll be working – as a caddie for his friend Ed Kirby, the head golf pro at Alpine Country Club in Cranston, R.I.

Remy sent us this photo from a practice round Sunday with Kirby:

Kirby and Remy will be in the first group off the No. 10 tee on Thursday, bright and early at 7:30 a.m. Their group will then lead the afternoon wave (12:40 p.m.) off No. 1 on Friday.
