One of the longest running player-caddie relationships has come to an end.

Mike “Fluff” Cowan and Jim Fuyrk have “amicably” parted ways, according to Golfweek. The two have worked together for the past 25 years starting at the 1999 Masters, a run that included a win at the 2003 US Open, a 2010 campaign that saw Furyk capture the FedEx Cup and PGA Tour Player of the year, and the 2021 US Senior Open.

However, Furyk has been playing a limited schedule of late due to injuries, while Cowan has picked up spot starts for PGA Tour player C.T. Pan. According to Golfweek’s Adam Schupak, Furyk encouraged Cowan to take on Pan’s bag full-time, jokingly threatening to fire him.

“It’s hard to part ways after 25 years,” Cowan told Golfweek. “Sometimes the right thing to do is staring you right in the face and you’ve got to have the guts to do it.”

Cowan, 76, began his pro caddie career in 1976 with Ed Sabo. After two years with Sabo he enjoyed two decades with Peter Jacobsen before moving to Tiger Woods in 1996. Woods and Cowan were together for Woods’ record-setting 1997 Masters victory.

The two eventually split in 1999, and Cowan’s been working with Furyk ever since.

Pan, 32, is in his eighth year on tour. He has status for the rest of the season thanks to a T-3 finish at the Mexico Open. Pan and Cowan are together for this week’s CJ Cup Byron Nelson.
