Patrick Cantlay Caddie cause of death | Caddie for PGA golfer Patrick Cantlay, Chris Roth has passed away.
24 years old, Patrick Cantlay Caddie died on February 13, 2016 after being struck by a car in a tragic hit-and-run.
Chris Roth was pronounced dead after arriving at a hospital.
Cantlay was barhopping in Newport Beach with his caddie, Chris Roth, when Roth was struck while crossing an intersection. Less than 10 feet from the hit-and-run accident, Cantlay rushed over to his friend and called 911. ‘By the time I got to him,’ he said, ‘there was nothing I could do.’ Roth was transported to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. He was 24.
‘You don’t know how you’re going to react in that situation,’ Cantlay said. ‘I’m standing there talking to the police officer and he says, ‘Do you want a towel or something to wipe yourself off?’ I was completely covered in blood. I didn’t realize it. Your importance level, your awareness of what is usually a big deal, was not a big deal to me. And I felt like that for months after.’
‘Your best friend is not supposed to die when you’re 23,’ Mulligan said, ‘and he’s not supposed to die in your arms, either.’
