Who Is Justin Thomas’ Caddie?

Justin Thomas has one of the most experienced caddies in the world on his bag. Jim “Bones’ Mackay” enjoyed a 25-year stint working with Phil Mickelson, during which time the pair captured five Majors and 41 PGA Tour titles together. One of golf’s longest partnerships came to an end in 2017, after which Mackay spent most of his time working for NBC Sports/Golf Channel as a commentator.

However, Mackay didn’t call it a day with caddying when he stopped working with Mickelson. He took up the offer to join forces with Thomas, and when the pair teamed up for the WGC-Fedex St Jude Invitational in 2018, his boss landed a huge win that took him back to the top of the world rankings. So, when Jimmy Johnson and Thomas decided to part company after six years together, Mackay stepped in.
