Caddie on the Epson Tour dies after passing out during a practice round

This past week, an Epson Tour caddie passed out during a practice round for the first tournament of the season.

Rick Evans had the medical emergency on Tuesday at the Country Club of Winter Haven, which was hosting the Florida’s Natural Charity Classic. He was looping for junior golfer Yana Wilson, who is 17 years old. Golfweek says Wilson found out two days later that Evans had died.

Evans, who was known as “Goose,” was a caddie at Liberty National in New Jersey for a long time. He worked for Wilson for the first time at the Mizuho Americas Open last summer. Wilson was the winner of the AJGA part of that event.

Wilson wrote on Instagram, “I have never met a cadd[ie] better than you.” “No one else could guide and encourage me like you could.” Thank you for always teaching me new things and being smart, both on and off the golf course. Yes, you were one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. I’m thankful to have known and learned from someone so great.

One of the last things you said was that one of your favorite things to do was watch me play golf. Feel free to keep an eye on me from above. I will do my best to make you happy.

Wilson, who was signed by Oregon and won a Cactus Tour event last month, made three eagles in one round on Saturday and was only two shots behind the leader going into Sunday’s final round. Wilson did not play in the last round, though, because he was sick. Golfweek says Wilson got dizzy while warming up on the range and decided she couldn’t play.
