Matt Kuchar has spent an entire PGA career building the reputation of being one of the nicest guys on the tour. One decision in November to only pay David Ortiz, a fill in caddie $5,000 after winning $1.3 million might have changed that forever. The backlash started at the Phoenix Open when Kuchar was heckled by fans throughout the tournament and by last week the story had become a mainstream nightmare for the once well thought of golfer.
After defending the size of the tip to the caddie last week, Kuchar had a sudden change of heart over the weekend and has agreed to pay Ortiz $50,000.
Where does this payment now leave Kuchar's reputation?
