Golf caddy Adam Woodward, and his partner Natasha Smith, welcomed a son named Ben almost a year ago. Ben’s birth has only just now been reported. I am unsure whether Ben is his full name, or if it is short for Benjamin.

Adam is from the New South Wales country town of Cowra, and is a former junior golfer. Discontent with working in his parents’ travel business, he took up an offer to try caddying for a year. Sixteen years later, he is now a Major winning caddy. This week, he entered the history books when he caddied for Sun Young Yoo to win the Kraft Nabisco Championship in California; he has been with Yoo for nearly two years.

Natasha is also from Cowra, and she and Adam live in Orlando, Florida, but still consider Cowra their home.
