Steven Bowditch, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour, had to rely on Twitter to find a caddie for this week’s John Deere Classic.
The Aussie’s form has deserted him, missing 35 of his last 37 cuts dating back to 2016, but he gets an invite to this week’s PGA Tour event as an alternate because he’s a past winner on Tour.
Any local kids/college players in the Quad cities area that are interested in caddying in the tournament this week, this thread is for you. The best response/reason gets the job. 2pm Tues start, finish Friday. 1% chance Sunday. Payment: all leftover gloves and balls are yours— bowdo (@bowdo83) July 10, 2018
If you’re excitedly reaching for your phone, don't - the position has been filled. A local 16-year-old got the job, and he'll be celebrating his birthday during the event.
This man has the heavy lifting for the week.. Thank you to all that offered. Love reading the replies and DMs.— bowdo (@bowdo83) July 10, 2018
