'Bones' among caddies dealing with stomach virus

MEXICO CITY – A similar stomach virus that forced Henrik Stenson to withdraw from the WGC-Mexico Championship after just 11 holes on Thursday and slowed Rory McIory’s return to the PGA Tour took a toll on caddies on Friday.

Phil Mickelson’s longtime caddie Jim “Bones” Mackay exited the course on the fourth hole. He was replaced by Mickelson’s brother, Tim, who was following the group in case Mackay wasn’t able to finish the round.

“[Mickelson] has only had three caddies, his father-in-law, Bones and me, and I’m retired,” said Mickelson’s manager Steve Loy, who struggled to remember the last time Mackay wasn’t on Mickelson’s bag during an official Tour event.

Kevin Kisner’s caddie, Duane Bock, was also slowed by a stomach virus on Day 2, but also planned to work despite his condition.
