From writer Dave Shedloski:
Bob Tway is once again caddieing for his son, Kevin, in the U.S. Amateur, and the younger Tway, a former U.S. Junior Amateur champion, looks like a lock to advance to match play after a 3-over-par 74 Tuesday at Chambers Bay gave him a 2-over 145 total. But Bob now has a happy dilemma, one he's faced in the past: to stay on Kevin's bag or go compete himself.
Don't be surprised if the eight-time PGA Tour winner remains at Chambers Bay for as long as his son is playing.
Two years ago Tway withdrew from the first PGA Tour playoff event, The Barclays, at Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey to stay with Kevin at the U.S. Amateur at Pinehurst No. 2. This week, he is scheduled to play in the Champions Tour event at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge, a much shorter commute than the North Carolina to New Jersey trek. The Boeing Classic begins Friday about an hour's drive from Chambers Bay in Snoqualmie, Wash., east of Seattle, but Tway thinks he might not make that tee time, either.
"To be honest, after walking 36 holes yesterday (Monday) I'm fried," said Tway, who caddied for Kevin at the Home Course after a quick scouting of Chambers Bay. "This is not an easy walk anyway, so I'm done in. But I can't say that it's that tough of a decision; I mean, I'd rather stay and help Kevin anyway and take it as far as we can go. We'll see. You know, I've played enough golf. This is more important."
