RICKIE_FOWLER_CADDYFORACUREIf you’re looking for a quick way to make it on the PGA Tour, there may be no better opportunity than the Caddy For A Cure program, which allows golf fans to go inside the ropes and caddy for a day with the world’s best players. Caddy For A Cure recently announced that rising PGA Tour superstar Rickie Fowler will help 2013 kick off their 2013 season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open at the TPC Scottsdale.

Always one of the most popular and well-attending events on Tour, the 2013 Waste Management Phoenix Open will be played between January 28th through February 2nd, with the caddy experience taking place on Wednesday, January 30th during the Pro-am competition.

Fowler loves giving back from this great sport and has participated with us multiple times in the past, becoming a huge supporter of our program.” said Caddy For A Cure CEO and program founder Russ Holden. “Our caddy for the day had so much fun last year with us at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill he wanted to do it again. We are also honored to include a Phoenix area wounded warrior who will escort the group for the day.”

Caddy For A Cure has been offering PGA TOUR caddy experiences for charity since 2003, and LPGA and Champions Tour experiences since 2010, with proceeds benefiting multiple causes. Benefitting charities include the PGA TOUR Birdies for the Brave military outreach, the PGA TOUR Professional Caddy Assistance Foundation, the LPGA Foundation USGA-Girls Golf program, the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund and families, and each participating player’s and host site’s charity.

Caddy For A Cure is a great way for you to have the PGA golf experience of a lifetime while giving something back to the community and helping those in need. Participating PGA Tour players this year include Graeme McDowell, Jason Dufner, Luke Donald, Tommy Gainey and Jim Furyk. All program caddy experiences may be found on the Caddy For A Cure website.

Bubba Watson Donates $50,000 to Caddy For A Cure

BUBBAIt took a little longer than most golf experts predicted, but since Bubba Watson earned his first victory last month on the PGA Tour, he’s been making the most of it. A year after pledging to donate $50,000 to Caddy For A Cure, Inc. Bubba has honored his word.

Caddy For A Cure is a program that offers an auction-style charity format to caddy for the world’s best golfers. Said Watson”I don’t like people caddying for me, but I told Russ at Caddy For a Cure, that if I ever won on TOUR, I would announce on national television that I am donating $50,000 to CFAC.”

“Our program offers golf fans opportunities with the best players in the world and Bubba definitely fits into that group,” said Russ Holden, Caddy For A Cure Founder, CEO and former PGA TOUR caddie. “Although someone didn’t get the opportunity to spend a day with Bubba inside the ropes as a caddie, everyone can get a feel for what a great guy he is, not only as a golfer, but through his integrity and commitment to help others.” he continued, “The timing of Bubba’s donation is perfect for supporting research into Fanconi anemia and its high connection with cancer, particularly given the issues Bubba’s family is facing with his father. Advances have been made in developing therapeutics for treating Fanconi anemia that show significant hope for potentially preventing cancer. We are truly grateful for the help from all players in supporting our cause, but Bubba Watson has taught us all a lesson in gratitude.”

Caddy For A Cure offers its caddie experiences from its website, www.caddyforacure.com, with auctions for each player. 100% of auction proceeds go to charity and caddie participation is fully tax deductible as allowed by law.
