I was deeply saddened to learn of Jim Nolan's passing. Long years ago, we were both caddies at Bryn Mawr Country Club in Lincolnwood, Illinois. Later, we worked together in the rack room cleaning and storing golf clubs. While I had not seen him recently, I often thought about the good old days at the golf course where he continued working long afterwards. I was always jealous of the movie production of "Caddyshack." I felt that our potential screenplay had been stolen by those Murrays from Indian Hill Country Club.

My condolences to the Nolan family. Jim guided many young men and women through the Evans Scholar gauntlet with grace and humility. His impact goes far beyond just those caddies who looped at BMCC. Jim knew it but would never take credit for it. He changed generations of lives for the better. Thank you.

I'm so sorry to hear about this. His honor in the Caddy Hall of Fame was well-deserved. I caddied under him in the late 1980s and, even though I had quite a few embarrassing days, he saw the good in me enough to support me for an Evans Scholarship (Illinois '94). Thank you, Jim, and you will always be remembered as one of those who played a major role in my life.

Rip Jimmy. You were my first “boss.”’ I’m sure you were many people’s first boss. You helped to shape strong work ethics in so many people. A lot of adults owe their current success partially to you. May you rest easy my friend and hope to see you on the other side.
