Michael O'Keefe Talks Caddyshack, The U.S. Open On The Big Show

Friday, September 11th

You remember him from the movie Caddyshack as country club worker Danny Noonan, and now Michael O’Keefe is (kinda) returning to the scene of the crime! 

Michael jokingly wrote an article in golf.com asking anyone playing in the upcoming Open at Winged Foot Country Club to hire him as a caddie, and what do you know, Michael will caddie for a pair of practice rounds at the 2020 US Open!

He will carry the bag of US Open first-timer Danny Balin, a New York native who is the head pro at a Long Island country club.

Michael checked in to talk about his return to the golf course and to reminisce about his time on set with Rodney Dangerfield, Chevy Chase and Bill Murray in the 1980 classic comedy ‘Caddyshack.’

When it comes to the great quotes from the movie, Michael is quick to praise the stars of the film.

"it's a testament to the great improv skills of Chevy & Phil & Rodney & Bill" he says, "they came up with all those lines."

Michael also says he's "doing pushups" and is in top shape for his return to caddying!

"I have a 7 year old"he says, "i get in all the work i need chasing him around!"

The U.S. Open kicks off Thursday, September 17th, with practice rounds beginning September 14th.
