New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton planned on a relaxing week at the Greenbriar Resort in West Virginia! Instead, his pal Ryan Palmer put him on the bag.

Palmer and Payton are good friends who met in Dallas.  They get together when Palmer comes to New Orleans to play the Zurich Classic.

After two days of  practice rounds and pro-am events, Payton said on Wednesday that he now realizes this isn't a vacation.

Payton says he isn't good at golf but he's quite comfortable adding up yardage at the Greenbriar.

After Thursday and Friday's opening rounds, Palmer sits at 1 under... squarely on the projected cut line.

Palmer said other caddies had warm reactions to Payton.
