Our friends at Caddy For A Cure offer great opportunities for YOU to get inside the ropes at Tour events to have one of the most unique and exciting golf experiences you could ever hope to have. From Phil Mickelson to Jim Furyk to golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the world's best players are eager to lend a hand and invite you to spend the day with them at actual Tour events.

The next great opportunity is now with world No. 1 and current PGA Champion Martin Kaymer at the beautiful Quail Hollow Golf Club during the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship. Interested fans should read the information below and contact Caddy For A Cure for more information. Good luck!

(April 12, 2011 - Coral Springs, FL) - Caddy For A Cure is a non-profit organization that lets fans bid in online auctions to caddy for a PGA TOUR or LPGA Tour player during their official practice or pro-am competition round, with proceeds donated to charity. This unique once-in-a-life opportunity is being offered by Caddy For A Cure at the 2011 Wells Fargo Championship with the world ranked #1 player, golfing sensation Martin Kaymer.

As part of the caddy experience, the auction winner will spend the day with Kaymer and his TOUR caddy on the driving range, putting green and golf course, experiencing each shot first-hand and being in the middle of the action of a professional golf event. They will walk shoulder to shoulder among the world's best players as they prepare to compete in one of the PGA TOUR's most exciting events - a rare experience inside the PGA TOUR.

"Our objective has always been to offer golf fans the best and most unique experiences in professional golf; to let them see it from an insider's perspective by bringing them closer to the game and to the players," said veteran PGA TOUR caddy and Caddy For A Cure Founder Russ Holden. "While we've had most of the world's best TOUR players participate with us before, this is the first time we've ever had the current world #1 ranked player participate with us. This is an amazing opportunity for someone to combine their passion for golf with a heart for helping others for an experience they won't forget."

While Caddy For A Cure supports and promotes awareness of the rare genetic disorder, Fanconi anemia, another component to the Caddy for A Cure program is its partnership with the PGA TOUR national military outreach initiative Birdies for the Brave program. Proceeds from this caddy experience with Kaymer will go toward supporting both causes, as well as toward the Teach for America Charlotte organization supported by the tournament and Kaymer's charity of choice.

The auction for the opportunity with Martin Kaymer is currently live on eBay and may be found from the www.caddyforacure.com website "player auction" link. The caddy date will take place on Wednesday, May 4, 2011, during the pro-am competition round of the Wells Fargo Championship (May 2-8) at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, NC.
