Unfortunately, the 2016 annual Caddie-Scholar Brunch was canceled due to inclement weather and could not be rescheduled. Matthew Barrett, of Huntingdon Valley Country Club and Lafayette College, was named the 2016 Francis C. Poore Caddie of the Year, and will be honored at a later date.
The 2015 J. Wood Platt Caddie-Scholar Brunch was held at Philadelphia Country Club. NFL and college football broadcaster Mike Mayock, a Philadelphia-area native and former caddie, was the guest speaker.
Joseph Schmidt, a six-year veteran of the caddie corps at Saucon Valley Country Club, was named the Francis C. Poore Caddie of the Year. Joseph is a senior at Penn State, where he is a double-major also enrolled in a five-year graduate degree accounting program. He is shown above, center, with his mother, Monica, left, and his brother Ryan, right.
