Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Golf might be considered an individual sport. But Champions Tour golfers making their final preparations in advance of this weekend's Dick's Sporting Goods Open said Thursday in order to do their best, they need a trustworthy teammate.

Action News hit En-Joie with professional golfer Jim Gallagher, Jr. during Thursday's official Pro-Am tournament at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.

"A caddy's got to be almost like a part-time psychologist," Gallagher said, "You know, part cheerleader, because you know sometimes when we play the tour you almost spend more time with your caddy than you do your wife."

Gallagher turned pro in 1983 and is a five-time PGA Tour champion.
