The name for a golf assistant is caddie or caddy. The word is also used for a small container, or a wheeled tray or cart (these are usually spelled caddy).
The word caddie was first coined in the 16th century when Mary, the Queen of the Scotts, employed young soldier cadets as porters whenever she played golf. These cadets became known as her caddies.
it arose by 1878 & perhaps as early as 1857 most likely in Scotland or perhaps England & probably as a contraction of before or else of fore caddie a fore caddie was a caddie who went before or ahead of a golfer to keep track of long shots & prevent lost balls
a "Swat" or "SWAT" in golf is another word for a "scramble" or "best ball" tournament.
What is the origin of the golf term "caddie"? When Mary, later Queen of Scots, went to France as a young girl (for education & survival) Louis, King of France, learned that she loved the Scot game golf. So he had the first golf course outside of Scotland built for her enjoyment. To make sure she was properly chaperoned (and guarded) while she played Louis ordered cadets from a military school to accompany her. Mary liked this a lot and when she returned to Scotland (not a very good idea in the long run) she took the practice with her. In French the word cadet is pronounced 'ca-day' & the Scots bastardized it into caddie.
