Gentle images from Bay Hill last weekend portrayed tournament caddying as a very different world from the grizzled old-time bagman with a cigarette dangling from the corner of his mouth. There was the sight of fit, athletic women carrying the sticks and looking entirely comfortable with their lot.

Indeed the climactic moments of the Arnold Palmer Invitational were brightened considerably by the sight of Helen Storey, Lee Westwood’s fiancee, receiving a courteous handshake from the winner, Bryson DeChambeau. All wonderfully civilized.
