Gia’s Caddy is her mother, Caroline Culler. It is a very special dynamic that allows a child and parent combo to work together on the golf course. Caroline and Gia mostly work on Shortgame and Preshot Routine. Shortgame would include: Putting, Chipping, Pitching, and Bunkers. Gia’s routine consists of: proper alignment, ball position, and imagination on the Golf Course.
During tournament action, Caroline gets yardage for Gia and can help her with advice, but also knows when to let Gia make her own decisions. One of the great lessons Golf teaches children is to use good judgement based on the information you have. Caroline is also an LPGA Professional and been a golf standout since she was a teenager.
