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.

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.
