Fore! Eccentric San Francisco Giants Closer Brian Wilson Plays Caddy For Kicks

Caddyshack III, perhaps? Perhaps not, but everybody’s favorite slightly unhinged MLB closer Brian Wilson added another character to his evolving repertoire of misfit personalities by caddying for PGA player Pat Perez during Tuesday’s practice round in advance of the upcoming Waste Management Open at TPC Scottsdale.

According to Wei Under Par, after his brief foray into caddying was finished, Wilson signed autographs and more than likely dazzled onlookers with his unique, devil may care approach to life. Just as we would expect from the guy. In a world of bland athletes providing canned and cliched answers as they meticulously try to refine and manage their public persona, the cult of personality which is Brian Wilson is a rare treat and we should all be thankful for the oddball.

One regret: where was The Machine? I bet he would make one helluva a caddy. A frightening one, to be sure, but when you’re on the course trying to decide between going six or seven iron, who else would you want by your side? Check that. Maybe that’s a stretch, but it would certainly be something.
