This wasn’t on par with receiving total consciousness on your death bed, but it’s still a heck of a tip for a caddie.

A Golf Weekly story noted that Billy Horschel was generous with the $10 million prize for winning last year’s FedEx Cup.

Horschel gave his caddie, Micah Fugitt, a $1 million bonus. Fugitt went through a wide range of emotions after learning of the gift.

“Shock, happiness, joy,” Fugitt told Golf Weekly. “You have such a wide range of emotions.

“He’s always been great about showing gratitude to people like that.”

Horschel also left $10,000 for the locker-room attendants at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, where he clinched the FedEx Cup title, Golf Weekly reported.
