At 47, Stewart Cink is playing some of the best golf of his life.
This weekend at the RBC Heritage, Cink cruised to victory, putting up a blistering 63-63 through the first two rounds of the tournament to lead the field by five heading into Saturday. On Sunday, Cink played a casual round of one-under golf to win his second tournament of the season, joining Bryson DeChambeau as the only two-time winners so far this season.
One of the keys to Cink’s great play of late has been his son Reagan, who took over carrying his father’s bag at the Safeway Open in September.
According to Golf.Com, Reagan’s time as Cink’s caddie was supposed to be a short-term gig. Reagan had recently graduated from Georgia Tech, gotten engaged, and began working in flight operations with Delta Airlines. For the Cink family, Reagan’s time on the bag was set to be a good bit of father-son bonding before the younger Cink began the next chapter of his life.
Then they started winning.
In Reagan’s first tournament on Cink’s bag, Stewart beat the field at the Safeway Open – his first PGA Tour win in over a decade.
“I can’t really overstate how important Reagan’s been as a caddie, too,” Cink said after his victory in September. “He understands golf to the very, very highest level. It was really a great experience.”
After the win and one more solid performance at the Bermuda Championship, Stewart asked his son to stay on the bag for a little while longer.
“We didn’t have to leave until Monday, so we were kind of sitting around the room with nothing to do; Reagan was there, my wife was there, all sitting around,” Cink said, per Golf.Com.
