It is astonishing how the simple act of setting foot on a golf course can change a human being, like slipping into another world for four hours. On this side, quiet and contemplative, on that side, raging and incoherent to the point of becoming hilarious.

Neil Oxman is far from your ordinary tour caddie and so you would not expect him to share a tiny room in a house on the back road to Turnberry during Open week. It is not that he wouldn't, for he has considered himself a caddie first these last 35 years and that's what caddies do.

We should judge solely on performance, for that is what we have asked of the man. Give me a 66 on Friday and a 67 on Sunday. Get in the hunt. Generate some excitement. Chase down the leaders and make himself relevant again. That's all we ask, right?
