This is a non story. Kuchars regular caddie, who has a contract, couldn’t make the tournament. Kuchar and this guy agreed to $3k, regardless of his finishing position. When he won, Kuchar offered him $15k, and the guy turned it down. So, Kuchar gave him $3k, the agreed upon, and a $2k tip, totaling $5k. I seriously don’t get why this is a story.
