I have a chance to caddy for an LPGA player for the year. i have nothing holding me down. just started a new job, i rent a spare house of my parents, don't have any real debt, no girlfriend, and no kids. i've had a really shitty year and this sounds almost like a vacation. $800 a week base salary, 11% of any win, 7% of any top 25, and 5% of anything else. also, all travel and hotel expenses paid. first week starts in feb at turtle bay in hawaii. anyone ever picked up and left, just to get the fuck away from it all?

thanks, guys. CDO, i know enough about what to look for and at during the practice rounds to carry her through the tournament. but, most of the courses i would be seeing for the first time. so that would mean i would be working almost every day of any event we entered, as long as she made the cut.

CDO, it's not that hard. it's more like, giving distances, raking bunkers, cleaning clubs, replacing divots, and helping to read greens. in the practice rounds, i would walk the course and, in a little notebook, draw each hole with seperate drawings of the greens that have the depth and width of each green and arrows that show the undulation. it comes easy to me because i've been in golf for about ten years so i know what to look for and why to look for it.

Not true from my experience. Majority of the players use their husbands or friends (albeit this was about 7 years ago). Decent gig. I would do it for a year if I had nothing to do. Is the player any good?

she was last year but it wasn't on the LPGA tour. but, she won enough on the futures tour to earn her LPGA tour card for the coming year. she seems to be pretty solid and a cool chick.

"what do you think you will make a year? is it for someone who is constantly top 25?" i'm not sure how much i'll make but it's not really about that. like i said, i don't have any kids, housenote, or debt. it's more about getting away from everything for a while. she will be a rookie this year so who knows. hopefully, if i do this, i can help her play well enough to keep her tour card and maybe even win an event or two.

"11% of a win? isnt that a shitload for the biggest events?" yes sir, the majors are in the $500,000 range. but the win has to happen, that's the hard part.

i have an interview at a club in little rock jan 12th, if they offer me something worth taking, i'm on it. this girl needs to call me, though. i really want to be on her bag becuase she's going to do well, but if she doesn't call i'll have to take someone else's. i work at a really nice course but would like to get the hell out of here for a while.

mteub, i was going to be. i'm at a course now, just not as an assistant. i let my pga eligibility expire and haven't had a chance to take the p.a.t. yet. if i don't leave i'll take it and probably move into the shop in the spring.

rufus, it actually depends on how well she plays. i won't get rich, but the chance to make good money is there.

Sounds like a good experience. If I was in your situation I'd go for it. One another note...I enjoy watching the LPGA more than the PGA (aside from just T&A).

don't know about doing her, i don't want her to be disappointed and start fucking up her game. maybe i could disappoint some other girls on tour and fuck up their game to help us out.
