NC CHARLOTTE – This week’s Well Fargo Championship competitors and caddies are wearing black ribbons to honor Lance Ten Broeck, who passed away on Sunday in south Florida.
Ten Broeck, often known as “Last Call Lance,” was one of the Tour’s most eccentric personalities. At the 2009 Texas Open, he made history by caddying and competing in the same event.
Ten Broeck’s death was “sad obviously, but he had been a little unwell for a while,” according to Adam Scott. “Lance and I had a lot of good times early in my career. I remember getting along with him well even though it was a long time ago.
Ten Broeck, a Tour player with 355 career starts, switched to caddying in 1999 with Jesper Parnevik, and the two of them took home their maiden victory at the Wyndham Championship. Additionally, he caddied for Richard S. Johnson, Tim Herron, and Ernie Els.
