"Centuries old and enjoyed by tens of millions of people worldwide, golf is seen by many as more than a sport. Yet what do we know about the other person on the course? The man or woman behind the player carrying the bag. In a narrative never before covered in any feature length documentary,Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walkexplores the incredible personal bond that a golfer and a caddie develop through hours of time together.

It is often said that a good caddie does three things: show up, keep up and shut up. But a great caddie wears many hats. They’re the player’s psychologist, mother/father figure, technical advisor and confidante. The film unveils the working dynamic between famous partnerships like the heartfelt story of Tom Watson’s and caddie Bruce Edwards. Conversely, it delves into the making of a caddie’s career with stories like Greg Puga — a young Bel Air Caddie from East Los Angeles who fought his way to Augusta to play in the Masters as a Mid-Amateur Champ. Whether familiar or new, these are stories that will make you re-think the way you look at Golf, and especially the job of the Caddie.

Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walkis a visual tour de force shot on the iconic courses of Pebble Beach, Augusta National, St. Andrews, Carnoustie, Prestwick, Ballybunion, and Lahinch. Crafted in the spirit of documentaries like “20 feet from Stardom”, “Jiro Dreams of Sushi” and “Step into Liquid”, the film is a must-watch document of the game of golf as you’ve never seen it before."

Reviews

Loopers charts the history of golf from its origins in Scotland to modern times. Traditionally, the caddie’s mantra was to ‘show up, keep up and shut up.’ They were banned from the clubhouse and treated poorly. However, they became an important part of the sport, acting as the player’s technical adviser, psychologist and confidant.
Sunday Times, Ireland (February 2, 2019)
… wishing ‘Loopers’ could be a series with each vignette an episode. Better yet, with striking panoramics of St. Andrews, Pebble Beach, Bandon, Carnoustie and other world-renowned courses, “Loopers” is reminiscent of the BBC’s “Planet Earth” series, educating while aesthetically captivating.
Golf Digest (March 2019)
I’ve only played a handful of rounds of golf in my life, and I don’t particularly care about the sport. Still, I found ‘Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk’ compelling. Any time you get somebody talking about their life’s work you’re probably going to get some good stories.

This weaves history with personality in telling a handful of specifically amazing golfer-caddie pairings, and is great even for those who hate golf.

As a documentary about golf caddies, Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk should have a solid audience among those who care about the sport. But the thing that will get it noticed outside of golf circles is that it is narrated by the most famous member of the Caddie Hall of Fame: Bill Murray.
“Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk”, the most thorough feature-length film documentary ever developed on golf’s historic caddie profession, will have two showings at the Newport Beach Film Festival – Saturday, April 27 and Monday, April 29. The film, narrated by actor and former caddie Billy Murray, has drawn critical acclaim in early 2019 as it continues on the international film festival circuit in the weeks following the Masters Tournament and prior to a June 7 United States theatrical release in approximately 25-50 United States markets.

Golfers get all the glory. But, shadowing each of the professionals such as Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Jordan Spieth is an unsung hero of the links: the caddie. That relationship is explored in the new documentary “Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk,” which debuted at the 34th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Feb. 2. The film is narrated by Bill Murray, who played an assistant groundskeeper in the 1980 iconic comedy "Caddyshack."
As a grizzled Irish caddie climbs a rugged mound at Ballybunion, guiding his player—or perhaps “dragging” is the proper appellation—through biblical gusts, a familiar voice purrs. “To acquire a caddie,” says Bill Murray at the beginning of “Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk,” “is to have an ally in the battle against the elements, the golf course and life itself.” Fitting for the scene, but also, as the film shows, an apt description for the profession. Which, distilled to its core, is really a passion.
SANTA BARBARA, California, USA (January 23, 2019) – “Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk” (www.loopersmovie.com, @loopersthemovie), the most thorough feature-length film documentary ever developed on golf’s historic caddie profession, will debut on Saturday night, February 2 at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. The film is narrated by actor and former caddie Billy Murray, who starred in the 1980 comedy “Caddyshack,” which was written by his brother Brian Doyle-Murray. The six Murray brothers grew up caddying at Indian Hill Club in Winnetka, Illinois.
A major documentary film is using Augusta as its backdrop. Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk tells the history of the game of golf, from a caddie's perspective and Augusta National is featured. In a film hoping to give the caddies their due, Loopers: The Caddie's Long Walk has traveled across the world to St. Andrews in Scotland, but a film about the history of golf can't really be a film about golf without Augusta National . You may recognize the name William Avery, he's a former Westside and Duke basketball superstar, but it's just recently that he's learning more about his great uncle, Nathaniel 'Iron Man' Avery, Arnold Palmer's caddie for his 4 Masters victories.
