The origin of the word ‘golf caddie’

There are different theories on where the word caddie come from. Among various theories there are two most widely accepted views.

The first theory is that it came from a man named James from England. This man made young officers to carry his club when playing golf. The theory claims that the word cadet turned to caddie.

The second theory is based on a story of Queen Mary who returned to Scotland after her husband’s death in the 16th century. During the time as French queen, she used to take noble children to serve her whenever she played golf. In French they were called ‘cadets’. The theory claims that the term ‘cadet’ turned to ‘caddie’, which meant little kids who runs errands or carries luggage in Scotland.
Both theories claims that the French word ‘cadet’ turned to ‘caddie’ in English.
