Class Action Lawsuit Against PGA filed by Caddies

On February 3, 2015, a group of professional golf caddies brought forth a class action lawsuit against the PGA.  The purpose of the lawsuit is to compensate caddies who have been forced to wear the logos of the PGA sponsors without any compensation.  

The lawsuit filed also states that caddies are treated as second class participants. The PGA does not allow the families of the caddies to use tents provided to the caddies at tournament venues. Caddies are not even allowed to be inside some of the clubs at certain tournament venues.
