Former World No. 1 Luke Donald Fired By Caddie John McLaren

Many people have commented on the recent story of John McLaren firing Luke Donald, however I found the story on the Golf blog to be the best. It seems that earning $300,000 a year is not good enough for some people. Go figure….more to this than meets the eye methinks. Read on.

After six years together, former world No. 1 Luke Donald has been ditched by his long-time looper.

The Mirror reports that Donald is “a little bit surprised” that John McLaren is in search of another job after the pair combined for nearly $30 million in earnings for Donald between the PGA and European tours. The standard 10 percent caddie rate would mean McLaren earned between $2 and $3 million working for Donald.

The former world No. 1’s last victory came at the 2013 Dunlop Phoenix, a Japan Golf Tour event he won two years in a row, but he’s fallen to 66th in the world after spending a total of 56 weeks atop the ranking between May 2011 and August 2012.
