Steven Bowditch just hired a 16-year-old to caddie for him via Twitter

Published

Things haven’t been going well for Steven Bowditch on the PGA Tour, as we well know. A winner in 2015, earning more than $3 million that year, Bowditch has had an extremely rough go of it since –making only two PGA Tour cuts in his last 32 PGA Tour starts.

Desperate times, then, call for…calling for caddie applications on Twitter. That’s right, Bowditch fired off this tweet.

Here’s the winning entry: A soon-to-be-17-year-old named Elias Francque. Experience? Check. Familarity with the course? Check. Plays golf well? Check. Able-bodied? Check. What more could you want?!

Solid pitch, young man! Now, we all have to pray to the golf gods that Bowditch makes the cut at TPC Deere Run.

Last year, a MDF finish earned $10K. It’d be great to see Elias awarded with something in excess of $1,000 (estimated 10 percent caddie share) for his efforts.

Let’s get it, indeed!
