DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Dave Renwick, the Scottish caddie who worked for three major champions and was on the bag for Vijay Singh’s greatest season, has died of stomach cancer. He was 62.

The European Tour announced his death Thursday at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. It passed out black ribbons for players, caddies and officials to wear in his honor.

Renwick was regarded as one of the best caddies on tour. He worked for Jose Maria Olazabal for eight years, including his 1994 Masters victory. He also worked for Steve Elkington when he won the 1995 PGA Championship.

Renwick had two stints with Vijay Singh, which covered all three of his majors. He was Singh’s caddie for seven of his nine victories in 2004 when the Fijian became the first PGA Tour player to earn $10 million in one season.
