Who Is Joel Stock? Will Zalatoris Newest Caddie Coming Up Big In PGA Tour

Joel Stock is a caddie on the PGA tour

Joel Stock is a PGA Tour caddie. He started his career when his friend and former University of Oregon college player Ben Crane asked him to step in for two weeks.  

The two continued working together for Crane for more than ten years after their first outing, winning four races.

Joel worked for Kevin Tway in 2020 and has been working for Cameron Tringale for the entire season of 2021.

A change in caddie can have a career-altering effect, but it seems like Will Zalatoris required around one round to build trust with seasoned looper Joel Stock.

Joel Stock will caddie for Zalatoris throughout the FedEx Cup playoffs, the PGA Tour's postseason, which gets underway in Memphis.

In their second official round together, Will Zaatoris decided to permit Joel Stock, his new caddie, to read putts.

On Saturday, Zalatoris first fired a 63 and then a 65. Since Zalatoris and Ryan Goble, his longtime caddie, broke up in the middle of the Wyndham Championship last week, Stock is carrying the bag for the first time.

It is also generally known that Zalatoris is one of the tour's most shaky putters from inside 10 feet.

Joel Stock Net Worth: How Rich Is He?

Joel Stock's net worth is under review. However, according to Rookieroad, a caddy's pay rate and income would depend on the amount of competition and the qualifications of the applicants.

The weekly pay for caddies on the PGA Tour ranges from $1,000 to $3000, plus a percentage of the golfer's winnings. As a result, we can assume that Joel Stock makes between $1,000 and $3,000 every week.

Caddies can make money through sponsorships as well. Caddies can earn money by wearing a cap or sporting a company's logo on their shirt sleeve, most often one for a club manufacturer or clothing company, though not to the same extent as players.

Terms are negotiated with any player/caddy contract, and they may involve a caddie taking a higher weekly salary and a lower cut of the tournament revenue. Furthermore, travel and lodging expenses are discussed, and some players even pay for their caddie's expenses.
