Len Nguyen is the sort of guy who comes through for you in a pinch – his friendly disposition outshined only by his stealth-like ability to anticipate a golfer’s every need. When tournament time rolls around, Len is the only representative to come in contact with the pros’ bags, and as a valuable behind-the-scenes coordinator, he runs the bag room at the Colonial Country Club with a level of precision the likes of which most golfers rarely see.

“We pride ourselves on running a meticulous operation, but typically if there’s a mystery, he’ll solve it. He’s a great detective,” said Matt Blake, professional golfer at Colonial Country Club.
But that’s not all; Len coordinates with local high school golf coaches and junior golf associations to arrange for junior golfers to caddy for the amateurs in the Pro-Am Tournament played on Tuesday during tournament week.
“My son, who played high school and collegiate golf, jumped at the opportunity to caddy for the Pro-Am. He and all of his golf buddies used to talk about Len and what a great man he is. Everybody loves Len Nguyen,” said Michelle Perry, agent at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty.
Whether out for a meet and greet or prepping bags, Len is hard to miss. He’s the guy who looks at the tee sheet and knows who is walking or using carts. He’s making sure preferred beverages are stocked in the cooler with a smile on his face and a few good jokes to pass the time. It’s all in a day’s work for the long-tenured bag man everybody – even the pros – call by name.
