The american golfer Matt Kuchar has been a lot of criticism, because he gave the caddy a pittance after a tournament win.
But Friday, Kuchar apologized to the mexican caddy David Ortiz and agreed to shake things up with some more dollar bills as a thank you for the effort to lug around on the star gear.
It was in november that Kuchar won a PGA tournament in Mexico and a first prize of 1.3 million (8.6 million kroner, ed.)
Normally caddies rewarded by getting ten percent of a victorious player's prize money, but David Ortiz was eaten by with a check for 5000 dollars, instead of the 130,000 u.s. dollars.
the Danish currency, this corresponds to an underpayment of approximately 826.000 crowns.
Kuchar justified the paltry remuneration that David Ortiz stepped in as a replacement for one of the permanent caddies, who travel with players to tournaments.
- For a guy who earns $ 200 a day, is a 5000 dollar week is really large, defended Kuchar himself earlier in the week.
But after he was jeered by the audience for the PGA tournament in Pacific Palisades, California, is golfmillionæren krøbet to the cross.
- This week, I have made inappropriate comments and exacerbated an already bad situation, said Kuchar in a statement.
According to the media, ESPN has Matt Kuchar earned over $ 46 million in his career.
I have failed myself, my family, my partners and those close to me. But I also betrayed David, he says.
- I'll call David in the evening, something that should be done for a long time, to apologize for the situation he has ended up in. And I have assured me, that he has received the entire amount he requested.
David Ortiz has previously said that he would be happy to get 50,000 more dollars to help the 40-year-old Kuchar for his first PGA victory in four years.
