Tiger Woods may be rocking his mock turtleneck at The Masters this weekend, but he isn’t the only one making a statement. Woods’ caddie has been representing two of his favorite sports teams under his jumper, as well as his favorite NFL franchise.
According to Golf.com, Woods’ caddie Joe LaCava has been seen wearing a New York Giants jersey with Saquon Barkley’s number today. LaCava has been seen wearing gear for the New York Rangers in the past.
LaCava has been Woods’ caddie since 2011, but has yet to see Tiger win a major while working with him. Even during Woods’ injury layoff, LaCava did not seek another golfer to work with.
We don’t know if Tiger is himself a Giants fan, but you can bet that plenty of Big Blue fans will be delighted to see their team represented on the golfing legend’s team.

Golf.com noted that LaCava is not the only caddie Tiger has had that liked to make fashion statements.
Mike Cowan, Tiger’s caddie until 1999, famously wore a Jerry Garcia shirt at the 1997 Masters. Tiger would go on to win that one.
Suffice it to say, if Tiger wins the Masters today while LaCava is wearing that jersey, Giants fans will probably be demanding that he wear it for every major.
