An all-new episode of America’s Caddie, featuring the quick wit and unique perspective of longtime caddie, comedian and ESPN golf analyst Michael Collins, is available to stream now exclusively on ESPN+.
In this third episode of the series “Jaguars, Tacos & The Island Green”, Collins gives fans a tour around Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., ahead of this week’s THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass. He takes on the iconic and intimidating TPC Sawgrass 17th hole “Island Green”, stages a friendly NFL/Golf crossover competition with Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee (and mascot Jaxson De Ville), works up an appetite for the TPC Sawgrass “Tacos on 12” tradition, and breaks down the legendary course like only a real caddie can.
