Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Behind every success, there is usually a right-hand person to thank. For golfers, it's their caddies.

What does it take to "coach" a PGA Champions Tour golfer?

Roger Chapman, 53, plays on both the Champions Tour and the European Senior Tour.

Chapman won the 2012 Senior PGA Championship and the 2012 U.S. Senior Open. He says he loves the course at En-Joie and hopes to win another tournament this weekend in Endicott.

"I'm hoping to do very well. I go home to England Sunday night for a few events in Europe so I obviously want to go out with a good tournament under my belt. It's a great golf course and I'm looking forward to it," said Chapman.

During the Pro-Am tournament at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open, Haley Burton was given the opportunity to be his caddy for a day. He offered tips on how to be a successful caddy.

"I think first and foremost, you've got to be a good mate of your golfer because you're out there six to seven hours, not just on the golf course but practice before hand and after. You've got to have to have a rapport with them and a good friendship is a great start," said Chapman.

The first round of the Dick's Sporting Goods Open tees off August 17.
