"Back then, the pros didn't bring their own caddies. They just used whatever was there. So, I just sat down and watched the whole thing proceed. My name didn't get drawn until the very end. I was beginning to forget if my name was Tom Murphy or Michael Kelly, I sat there for so long!" said Michael Kelly, Murphy's friend and fellow caddy.
"Out of the 200 people, I was third from the last to draw and everyone knew Tony Jacklin is still there. So, his name came up. He was one of the favorites to win," said Kelly.
Tony Jacklin was indeed the winner of the Open in 1970.
As his caddy, Murphy ended up taking home about $3,000 in prize money.
