We're tired of our playing partners re-enacting the opening scene of Reservoir Dogs when it's time to tip the forecaddie so we asked the most knowledgeable men and women in golf -- the Golf Magazine Top 100 Teachers in America -- how much you should tip your caddie, forecaddie, locker-room attendant and even the guy who cleans your clubs. Here's what the Top 100 Teachers said: Caddie_tip Comments: "Ask the caddie master what is appropriate for the club you are playing at. They differ." --Todd Sones, White Deer Golf Course Vernon Hills, Ill. "Over $100 at high-tier course /$61-$81 at a mid-tier course/$41-$60 at a low-tier course." --Rod Lidenberg, Prestwick Golf Club Woodbury, Minn. Forecaddie_forweb Comments: "Again ask caddie master, but normal is $30 to $40." --Todd Sones, White Deer Golf Course Vernon Hills, Ill. Lockerroom_tip Comments: "$5 per pair of shoes." --Todd Sones, White Deer Golf Course Vernon Hills, Ill. "$5 if no shoe shine, $ 10 if shoes are shined." --Jim Murphy Sugar Creek Country Club Sugar Land, Texas Club_clean_tip_forweb Comments: "$3 to $5, depending on how good a job he does." --Todd Sones, White Deer Golf Course Vernon Hills, Ill. "$5 to clean clubs and take clubs to car." --Jim Murphy Sugar Creek Country Club Sugar Land, Texas
