BROOKLINE, Massachusetts – It’s somewhat fitting that in a place made famous by a young caddy who walked across the street and won the US Open, it was an old caddy who has traveled the world to get to this point, and finally won while holding the bag for a great champion.

Matt Fitzpatrick put on a remarkable performance on Sunday to win the US Open at The Country Club, but his caddy, Billy Foster, enjoyed the moment just as much.

An hour after Fitzpatrick took his win, Foster was still taking in the scene at The Country Club, enjoying the atmosphere with volunteers and others in the 18th fairway, drinking a Heineken while taking congratulations and trying to say a few words with reporters.
