Much has been made about the idea that players will need to have played several practice rounds on Chambers Bay if they are to seriously contend at next weeks US Open.  But one man, Jordan Spieth, will have a massive advantage by having a course expert on his bag.

Spieth's caddie Michael Greller is a former Chambers Bay resident and teacher at the local Artondale school who knows the course like the back of his hand. He also married his wife Ellie, a kindergarten teacher, in Chambers Bay

Himself a good collegiate golfer, Greller first carried the bag of Matt Savage in the amateur scene in 2006 and moved to Chambers Bay where he worked as a caddie.  When the course hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur Greller caddied for Justin Thomas. The following year he started with Jordan Spieth.

They say local knowledge is huge in golf and nobody knows more about Chambers Bay than Michael Greller.
