There is a rule of thumb in Jamaica that when playing a money match, you should watch your opponent's caddie rather than your opponent.

"I would not do such a thing," says Linton, with stark candor. "This is a good job and a good game. I would not do anything to harm the game. I am not saying that caddies haven't done such things. I am saying that I would not. I like the game. I like my job."
