Former PGA Tour Caddie Greg ‘Boats’ Rita Dies

An unfortunate and sad bit of news to pass along today. Former PGA Tour Caddie Greg ‘Boats’ Rita passed away at 9PM on Saturday, February 27th. Back in 2007, Rita was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Ever since the diagnosis he battled like a true champion.

During his career on the PGA Tour, Greg caddied back-to-back US Open wins for Curtis Strange, won an Open Championship with John Daly, and also had what it took to caddy for David Duval and Mark O’Meara.

He will be sadly missed. May he rest in peace.

Deepest condolences and sympathies to his family and friends from the team at GolfCrunch.

Got something to say? Go for it!
