Joe (Joseph) LaCava is a household name golf aficionado and especially among the great Tiger Woods fans. Tiger, as you know, is widely regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all time and one of the most famous athletes in modern history. And a big share of the “World Golf Hall of Fame” inductee’s win certainly has to go to his caddie of longtime, Joe LaCava. Even when Tiger had given up on himself and was done as a competitive golfer, Joe had remained his last man standing. The caddie still believed he would share more magical Sundays with his employer and believed in him for his faith in Tiger was and has always been his wife Megan LaCava.
He still thought what happened last month at the Masters was more likely than not.
Meet Megan LaCava, Joe LaCava’s Wife
Megan, who can talk to you in length about the darkest days of Tiger Woods and her husband’s lay-off now and then, has never needed to worry about her husband and her family as Tiger has been generous with Joe and the family even during the layoff days. Megan was therefore worried about Tiger, and whether he would ever be healthy enough to play another event. This was back in May 2019 when Tiger was bedridden with fourth back surgery; Tiger’s back problems started in the spring of 2014.
