Want to caddie for Justin Leonard, Boo Weekley, or Woody Austin?
As a golf equipment junky, my favorite part about covering professional golf events is being able to sidle up to the caddies waiting alongside rows of golf bags and chat about the sticks the pros are using.
So what could be better than that? Actually being one of those caddies, that’s what.
Now here’s your chance. Caddy For a Cure offers high-bidders the opportunity to caddie for pros during a practice round of a PGA Tour event.
For the upcoming Verizon Heritage Classic, April 14-20, interested parties with some extra “green” to spare can bid on looping rights with Justin Leonard, defending champ Boo Weekley, or Woody Austin. (Or all three, if you’ve got lots of green to work with.)
The auctions, which occur throughout the season for several pro tourneys, take place on CharityBuzz.com, and all proceeds go to charities of the players’ choice.
Last I checked, the starting bid for each of the bags was $2,500, which includes a 2-night, 3-day golf vacation in Arizona and a passel of golf-related goodies, all together valued at over $2,000.
And that’s before you even factor in the value of getting to pull (and maybe surreptitiously fondle) clubs for one of the best players in the world.
