Caddie for the Pros at Houston Open, Colonial

A new charitable organization called Caddy For a Cure gives regular golfers the chance to caddie for tour professionals during practice rounds at PGA Tour events. As a result, some great charities get an influx of cash.

There's a rundown of the program here. But the basics are pretty simple: At five different Tour events during 2005, a certain number of players are, in a manner of speaking, being auctioned off. Or rather, the right to carry that player's bag during a practice round is being auctioned. The auctions take place through eBay and can be followed there or on the Caddy For a Cure website.

At the time of this writing, there are two days remaining in the initial auctions for caddie spots at the MCI Heritage Classic.

Two Texas events are taking part, the Shell Houston Open and the Bank of America Colonial. At the Houston Open, Jeff Maggert, Chad Campbell and Jose Maria Olazabal are up for grabs. Those auctions are under way right now, so if you want to bid, take a look at the auction page.

Auctions for the Colonial players participating - as of this writing, Stephen Ames, Stuart Appleby, Sergio Garcia and Kenny Perry - take place later on.
