Auction Open to caddie for Karrie Webb

You could caddie for Karrie Webb in the US next month.
How much would you pay to caddie for Australian golf legend Karrie Webb?

That’s a question many golf fans will be asking themselves after the World Golf Hall of Famer’s decision to auction off the right to be her caddie on the eve of next month’s US$1.75 million ShopRite LPGA Classic in New Jersey.

Bids are already being placed to carry the 7-time major winner’s bag during one of the practice rounds on either June 6 or June 7 (day to be confirmed by Webb) 

As of Monday Australian time, the current bid stood at $1800 though the person who eventually buys the right to be Webb’s looper will surely pay much closer to the estimated value of $5,000.

Bidding will close on May 10 at 3pm US East Coast time with bids supporting the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

The lucky caddie will also join Webb as her guest at the pre-tournament ShopRite Pro-Am Celebration on the night of June 6.

Webb is in the field at this week’s LPGA Texas Classic, which had its first round cancelled due to severe weather.

It will be Webb's first LPGA Tour start since February's Women's Australian Open in Adelaide where she missed the cut.
