Want to caddy at the Open Championship? Try eBay

More eBay craziness, with an Aussie tour pro (the unheralded David Diaz) offering someone a chance to loop for him at the Open at the Old Course -- for a price. Right now it is $20,000 (Aus) and rising, so apparently there are some people out there willing to kick out the cash to caddy for two rounds in a major championship. I must admit it does sound pretty cool. If Diaz wins, which is about as likely as some guy named Ben Curtis winning, he'll even give you the standard 10% of his winnings, which would be a nice tidy sum. However, if he doesn't make the cut, which is more likely, then be prepared to cover your costs in getting to St. Andrews, as well as your accommodations.

"kick out the cash to caddy for two rounds"

I noticed you didn't say "four rounds"...

Yeah. Good point. And from what I've heard from caddies' trying to make the trek over to Scotland, it's almost more trouble than it's worth. So he's asking for an additional $20,000+? Personally, I think the guy is hedging. He just wants to make sure he'll leave that tournament with SOMETHING.

Oh yeah. And how are you doin' Mr. Thompson? Haven't talked to you in a while. Hope all is well.
