McIlroy, Rose and Westwood participate with Caddy for a Cure

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- Caddy For A Cure, Inc., the program that offers opportunities to bid for a chance to go inside the ropes and caddy during a professional practice or pro am round announces its return participation at the first event of the PGA TOUR FedExCup Playoffs, The Barclays.

The caddy experiences being offered with players Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood are for the August 21st Pro am competition round preceding tournament play of The Barclays. The tournament will again be held at the beautiful Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, NJ.

Caddy For A Cure CEO and program founder Russ Holden said "We are extremely excited to be able to offer these three outstanding players at this year's Barclays event. Both Rose and Westwood have participated with us previously and are not only big supporters of our program, but are simply fantastic people. We have been talking with Rory for a couple of years about finding a good date to participate and are thrilled his debut with us will be at this exciting event." Holden continued, "While having the opportunity to caddy and partner with any player who has earned a TOUR card is an amazing experience, being able to spend the day with former world #1 ranked players or the reigning US Open Champion is a unique privilege and will be simply unforgettable. The idea of getting to have one-on-one time with golf fans while raising funds for charity is a solid win for the players, for golf fans and for charity."

Caddy For A Cure has been offering PGA TOUR caddy experiences for charity since 2003, and LPGA and Champions Tour experiences since 2010, with proceeds benefiting multiple causes including combat wounded warriors and fanconi anemia. Program caddy opportunities may be found from the Caddy For A Cure website and the respective auctions for each player at www.caddyforacure.com.

Caddy For A Cure is a 501-c-3 nonprofit corporation and contributions for caddy experiences are 100% tax deductible as allowed by law.
