Crenshaw, fans celebrate caddie's 50th Masters

Ben Crenshaw and Carl Jackson didn't exchange any words on the first tee about what was going to happen Thursday morning. They didn't have to. "We know what it is," Crenshaw said. That would be the 64-year-old Jackson's record-extending 50th Masters Tournament as a caddie. Jackson caddied his first Masters in 1961 at age 14 for Billy Burke and has missed just one year -- 2000 -- when he was recovering from cancer.

Caddie's advice key for Crenshaw

Ben Crenshaw might not have won the 1995 Masters Tournament had Carl Jackson not taken the "caddie shortcut" to the edge of the ninth fairway at Augusta National Golf Club to save some time. The move put Jackson about 150 yards away from Crenshaw, who was teeing off on No. 9.

Caddie for the ages

Carl Jackson was 11 the day he started his caddie career. Now, 53 years later, Jackson is on the verge of a milestone: This week he'll caddie in his 50th Masters Tournament.

2-time winner returns thanks

If he'd had no other experiences in his life but the ones in Augusta, Ben Crenshaw told throngs of fans gathered at the Augusta Botanical Gardens, he would have lived a full, rich life.

Pieces of puzzle drop in place for Crenshaw

Ben Crenshaw slumped over and grabbed his kneecaps as the gallery roared.

Crenshaw makes us believe one more time

Thursdays are for dreamers, and few dream bigger at the Masters Tournament than Ben Crenshaw.

Jackson's 45th isn't enough

At 8:22 this morning, when Ben Crenshaw hits his opening tee shot at Augusta National Golf Club, Carl Jackson will extend a little-known Masters Tournament record.

Crenshaw holds golf clinic

Ben Crenshaw, Masters Tournament champion in 1984 and 1995, came to Augusta's Fort Gordon to visit soldiers, retirees and civilians and conduct a golf clinic. Mr. Crenshaw gave tips in Monday's visit on how to improve chipping the ball on the green and putting.
