HVCC’s Jay Fisher finds redemption in Caddie Tournament

  UPPER DARBY, Pa.–Jay Fisher of Huntingdon Valley Country Club found redemption at the 67th Caddie Tournament on Monday at McCall Golf & Country Club (par 66, 4,419 yards). Fisher posted a tournament low even-par 66 to win his flight, ages 18-21.

  Fisher was in-line to win the youngest flight of the 2009 Caddie Tournament at LedgeRock Golf Club. However, he failed to sign his scorecard and was disqualified.

  “Absolutely,” said Fisher, 19, of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., when asked if those memories still haunt him. “I think about it all the time. The first thing I said when I walked off the green was sign your scorecard.”

  Fisher’s game entered this year’s tournament with issues. Two holes in, he was 2-over par in search of answers.

  “I haven’t been playing well all year,” said Fisher. “I’ve been working a lot. My brother (Graig) and I worked the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open for ESPN. We were getting yardages for the on-air guys.”

  However, Fisher righted the ship with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 5-6. He knocked a short chip on No. 5 (par 4, 314 yards) to three feet and made birdie after almost driving the green. On No. 6 (par 3, 117 yards), he lofted his 56-degree wedge to inches for a tap-in 2.

  Subsequent bogeys on Nos. 7 and 8 pushed Fisher to 2 over, but a pair of up-and-down par saves on Nos. 10 and 11 had him in a positive frame of mind.

  A birdie on No. 15 (par 3, 104 yards) with a 56-degree wedge to 15 feet moved him to plus-1 overall. He added another red figure on No. 17 (par 4, 361 yards) with a 60-degree wedge from 70 yards to 10 feet.

  “I didn’t think even par had a chance to [be low overall]” said Fisher, who has caddied at Huntingdon Valley the last six years. “I was concentrating on my age group. I was really just trying to beat my brother. He and Jack Connelly [the long-time Huntingdon Valley pro] taught me to play golf.”

  Fisher is a sophomore at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He is a current J. Wood Platt Caddie-Scholar.

  Jon Rudisill, a Pine Valley Golf Club caddie, posted a 1-over 67 to win the 28-40 age flight.

  Rudisill was 1-over par at the turn. He made three birdies, a bogey and a double bogey over the last nine holes to make a title run. Rudisill was 1 under through the first six holes of his back side but drove a ball out-of-bounds on No. 16 (par 4, 386 yards) and made double.

  Rudisill, 31, of Wyomissing, Pa., typically competes in Berks County events. He won the Berks County match play title three years.
