Job: PGA Tour caddie

Hours: 2 p.m. Tuesday until Friday, with a one percent chance of work required on Sunday

Pay: Leftover golf gloves and golf balls

That is the job description and requirements that PGA Tour golfer Steven Bowditch posted on Twitter Monday night. With the PGA Tour heading to TPC Deere Run in Illinois for the John Deere Classic, Bowditch gave anyone the chance to caddie for him this weekend.

All you had to do was give your best elevator pitch, er, Twitter reponse, to be entered.

Bowditch chose a local golfer named Elias Francque, who said he turns 17 years old on Friday and hopes he can get the birthday present of helping Bowditch make the cut.

Here's the full thread.

Let's hope for both Bowditch and Francque, that the duo capitalizes on Bowditch's self-proclaimed one percent chance of making the cut.
