Keegan Bradley has made a decision to split with his longtime caddie Steve “Pepsi” Hale. They have been working together ever since Bradley has been on the PGA Tour and Hale has been on the bag for each of Bradley’s three PGA Tour wins, including the PGA Championship.
For the first time in nearly 5 years @Keegan_Bradley will not be with caddy Steve "Pepsi" Hale after split. Bradley said time for change.

Hale is nicknamed “Pepsi” because of how much Pepsi he drinks. He is known to hide bottles and cans of pepsi throughout the course so he can pick them up to drink during the round.
People shouldn’t confuse this change as Bradley blaming Hale for his struggles because it is clear that Bradley has always been on Hale’s side. During the 2015 WGC Cadillac Match Play, Bradley and Miguel Angel Jimenez got into a disagreement and Hale became involved. Bradley can be seen backing up his caddie in the video below.
Starting this week at The Players, Bradley will have Chad Reynolds on the bag, who is the caddie for Nick Watney. Watney is out with an injury and will be out for the next few months.
