Answer: The records aren't clear, but many have speculated that Mary, Queen of Scots, brought the term "caddy" into the golf lexicon. In France, where Mary grew up, military cadets carried golf clubs for royalty, and it is possible that Mary brought the custom to Scotland, where the term evolved into the word "caddy."
