WATCH: This Phil Mickelson and Bones Mackay tribute is awesome

The golfer and caddie relationship is one of the best in sports. The caddie serves as the golfer’s only true teammate, as he visualizes green slopes with ninja vision.

Phil Mickelson and Jim “Bones” Mackay’s time together as as a dynamic duo has come to an end. Together, these two would go on to capture five major championships, and will go down as one of the all-time great partnerships in golf.

The always entertaining and enjoyable Skratch TV, put together a beautiful tribute of the pair. In almost all of the clips, you can hear the chatter between the two guys that always had fun together.

We obviously know how great Mickelson is as a player, but Bones was such a great caddie for him, that everyone knew how significant his skills around the course helped Mickelson in his wins. A Hall of Fame golfer with an HOF worthy caddie is always a fun duo to watch.

We just witnessed the break up of a legendary tag team. Bones alone is truly one of the guys who I feel helped keep the profession of caddying on the map, which is why he’s a straight legend in his own right.

I bet, if there’s one person aspiring PGA Tour caddies look up, it’s Jim “Bones” Mackay, a yardage seeking, green reading samurai. It was fun dudes.
