Matt Kuchar returns to Mayakoba Golf Classic and site of ‘Caddie-Gate’

Matt Kuchar returns to the Mayakoba Golf Classic this weekend as the reigning champion. However, this is also the site of the infamous "Caddie-Gate" involving a fill-in caddie, David Giral Ortiz. After his win last November, a story broke that he had paid his caddie far less than the normal 10-percent rate of the winner’s check. The story grew into national news and the social media uproar that ensued sullied his former choir-boy image. Kuchar issued a statement in which he apologized for his initial actions and wrote Ortiz a check for the wrongdoing. Kuchar tees off Thursday morning at the Mayakoba Golf Classic.
