Justin Thomas and caddie Jim ‘Bones’ Mackay part ways just one week before the Masters

Justin Thomas’ Surprise Decision to Switch Caddies: Revitalizing His Game for the Masters with New Partner Matt Minister

Justin Thomas’ decision to split from his caddie, Jim “Bones” Mackay, just a week before the Masters has shocked the golf world. Thomas took to social media to express his gratitude for Mackay’s partnership, highlighting their major victories and unforgettable experiences together, such as winning the PGA Championship in 2022 and the Presidents Cup.

However, after a tough stretch in his career, Thomas decided it was time to revitalize his game with a new caddie by his side. He has enlisted veteran caddie Matt Minister, previously with Patrick Cantlay, to carry his bag for the upcoming Masters tournament.

Thomas had hired Mackay in 2021 following his commentary gig with NBC Sports, transitioning from his longtime partnership with Phil Mickelson. The duo found success in winning Thomas’ second major but struggled in the 2023 season, failing to make the FedExCup playoffs and needing a Ryder Cup captain’s pick.

Despite these challenges, Thomas has shown signs of improvement recently, posting multiple top-12 finishes since last fall. With his father’s guidance on his swing, he has made strides in his approach play but still struggles with putting, ranking outside the top 150 in strokes gained.

Mackay received well wishes from Thomas as they parted ways and expressed confidence in both their future endeavors. He acknowledged the impact Mackay had on his career and personal life during their time together.

As Thomas prepares for the Masters tournament with Minister by his side, he hopes to continue building on this newfound momentum and find success once again on the course.
