Oliver hangs with Jimmy Roberts, the award-winning NBC broadcaster who has traveled the world covering every major event in golf, including the Olympics. Roberts grew up caddying in New York and has learned that a passion for golf can take you anywhere. Together, Oliver and Jimmy take on a very specific (and frightening) golf challenge!

Meet Your Caddie, Oliver Horovitz

He is a writer, filmmaker, and caddie on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. He has written about golf for Sports Illustrated, Golf Digest, Golf World, Billboard. LINKS, Golfweek, and Architectural Digest. He began caddieing in Gloucester, Massachusetts, summers, at age 12, 5'1", and 93 lbs. His first summer, he was paid $20 to carry a 70-lb golf bag containing three six­packs of beer, but that's another story.

Horovitz is a 2008 graduate of Harvard College. Before attending Harvard, he completed a gap year at the University of St. Andrews, in Scotland. In 2007, he wrote, directed, and produced a documentary called The Caddies of St. Andrews. He divides his time between New York City and St. Andrews, Scotland.

His biggest regret in life is forgetting to tell Huey Lewis about Cheape's Bunker on the 2nd hole of the 2010 Dunhill Pro-Am Championship, causing a double-bogie.
