Insert your favorite Jimmy Buffett lyric here.

The 71-year-old musician was on hand Monday for a U.S. Senior Women's Open practice round and appeared to actually serve as a caddie for competitor Patricia Ehrhart.

It's convenient for Buffett, as the tournament is being contested at Chicago Golf Club (from July 12-15) and he'll be performing at Wrigley Field on Friday (with a Tuesday gig in Cincinnati in between).

But there's more than just the matter of convenience: Ehrhart is Buffett's niece.

It looked like a nice family gathering on Monday:

My uncle says you've got a screw loose

Jimmy Buffett Cashes in on ‘Margaritaville’ Brand With Restaurants, Spirits, More

  Jimmy Buffett Cashes in on ‘Margaritaville’ Brand With Restaurants, Spirits, More Before Jimmy Buffett, “rock ’n’ roll” and “leisure” hardly counted as overlapping industries. British rockers might have done photo shoots at their lavish country estates, but publicly, for the most part, the essential rock maxim remained: Never let ’em see you not sweat. But it was Buffett’s genius — as a businessman, if not necessarily an artist — to play down the shiftlessness of some of his early beach-bum character studies and play up relaxation as an aspirational lifestyle. Cut to now, when Margaritaville, the company named after Buffett’s sole No. 1 pop hit, brings in between $1.5 billion and $2 billion annually.

The best part about having Buffett as caddie? If you're looking for good tunes, you don't have to go very far.

Berkshire rallies on Buffett's move toward stock buybacks .
Berkshire Hathaway Inc. shares climbed the most in four months after the company signaled that investors may soon get their hands on part of a $109 billion mountain of cash that’s bedeviling Warren Buffett. The company's board announced late Tuesday that it’s removing a cap on stock buybacks, giving the Berkshire chairman and chief executive officer greater leeway to parcel out profits, rather than hunt for more acquisitions. Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger can now make repurchases whenever they both believe the price “is below Berkshire’s intrinsic value, conservatively determined,” the company said.
