From the Inside Flap:

They have nicknames like Stovepipe, Burnt Biscuits, Skillet, Skinny, and Marble Eye. They worked for Presidents of the United States, the greatest players in the world, and the captains of industry. Cemetery carried for President Eisenhower and was once left for dead in the morgue. Arnold Palmer's wife Winnie overpaid Iron Man, Arnie's caddie in 1958, with a check for $14,000 instead of $1,400 that the overjoyed bagman tried to cash at the clubhouse. And who can forget the stoic Carl Jackson comforting Ben Crenshaw after his emotional victory in 1995, shortly after the death of Crenshaw's mentor and friend Harvey Penick.

These colorful characters have witnessed every great moment, both private and public, at Augusta National, from Gene Sarazen's "shot heard 'round the world" to Nicklaus winning a record five of his six Masters. Then, in 1983, things changed forever when "Tour caddies" were allowed at the Masters for the first time. Memories of a better day live on as Ward Clayton documents a history as compelling as the game itself.

From the Back Cover:

"Men on the Bag is an intimate look at the lives of some very proud and talented men who have contributed greatly to the lore of Augusta National. Most of the Masters Champions could not begin to thank them enough." - Ben Crenshaw
