PGA TOUR caddie Todd Montoya came out as gay in an emotional interview on the Golf Channel.

“Something that you kept secret for so many years amongst people that you consider your friends and your co-workers — over the course of time, you grow close to them and until people that I care about know that I’m gay, they really don’t know me for my entirety,” Montoya told Golf Channel reporter Kira Dixon.
