There can be a wide range of salaries in regards to how much PGA caddies get paid. This is largely due to the fact that a caddy gets paid based on how well a golfer performs. A caddy gets paid a salary of $1,000 per week plus bonuses.
On top of their weekly salary, a caddy earns 5 percent of the tournament purse. If his golfer places high enough, the caddy earns 7 percent of a top finisher and 10 percent if the golfer wins the tournament. Some PGA caddies earn six-figures each year, while others earn little more than their weekly salary.
