TODD HAMILTON: Yeah, he couldn't get a work Visa to get in the States. He had tried to come over and caddie 2003, I believe it was, up in New York for a tournament. I was still playing in Japan at that time, but I got an invite to the PGA Championship, and they stopped him at the border. I don't know how they found out that he was going in there to caddie, but they stopped him and wouldn't let him in. And I assume when that happened, every time he tries to go across the border, now he's got this big red X or black X or whatever.
Actually when I got my card, we knew we had to do paperwork which we were in the process of card fall of 2003, he was going to start caddying 2004 without the paperwork, but we were doing it. In Hawaii he said he had an aunt out there and was going to go out there and he was going to visit her and they wouldn't let him leave Vancouver. Again, I'm sure when they scanned his passport, it's in there, look, this guy is a pro golf caddie, and the guy I guess knew that there was a tournament in Hawaii that week. Eventually the guy there's a lawyer in Dallas who was doing all of the paperwork for me and he was recommended by the TOUR. Eventually the guy just decided to drop the case because of all that. I actually saw him, he went back to Japan and caddied last year. I saw him last November for a week. I heard from a friend of his yesterday that he's here around this area this week. He's not back in Japan caddying. I don't even know if he still does that anymore.
Q. What's his name?
TODD HAMILTON: Jeff Mulberry. I assume he's still caddying but I don't know.
Q. How long was he on your bag?
TODD HAMILTON: Two years. He brought me a lot of good luck. My second year with him in 2003 we won four times together, that was the first time I had won in about five years over there. So we had a few beers that year for sure.
