Caddie Jack and golfer Jazz -- the odd couple of Miller and Janewattananond is a hit in PGA at Bethpage Black


The Legend of Jack Miller grew with every step he and Jazz Janewattananond took the last four days.


Janewattananond, 23, presented himself to the American golf scene and endeared himself to the notoriously boisterous New York crowd.


And Miller, 63, who is also a frozen foods manager at King Kullen, got to live a deferred dream, carrying in his first (and likely only) major.


That was key for Janewattananond, who came to Long Island from Thailand with neither a caddie nor a local fan base.


It certainly helped that Janewattananond was an endearing character in his own right, injecting youthful energy and fun into a tournament that seemed all but decided before Sunday.
