After nearly seven years on the job, Tim Mickelson, Phil Mickelson’s younger brother and caddie, is retiring to spend more time with his family. This comes just weeks after Phil announced that he would be leaving LIV Golf, a Saudi-backed league where Tim had followed him for the past two years.

Tim first took over as Phil’s caddie in 2017, replacing Bones Mackay who had been with him for 25 years. During his time with Phil, Tim helped him win three times on the PGA Tour, including the 2021 PGA Championship. However, their success together came to an end when Phil decided to join LIV Golf in 2019.

Despite this setback, Tim remained loyal to his brother and continued to work with him on the course. His replacement has not yet been announced, but LIV’s next event is scheduled for next week at Doral outside of Miami. As for Tim, he will now have more time to focus on his family and other pursuits outside of golf.

Phil expressed gratitude for the great moments shared with Tim both on and off the course over the past eight years. He thanked his brother for all of his hard work and dedication during their time together as caddies. As they say goodbye to each other on this journey in golfing world they are grateful for each other’s contributions and wish them happiness in their future endeavors
