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!

81-year-old golfer makes 2 hole-in-ones during 6-hole stretch

Published

on

Making an ace is a life goal of many amateur golfers, and the prospect of making two in one round would understandably be unfathomable to most. But that’s precisely what 81-year-old golfer, Chuck Miller, pulled off, and what’s more, he achieved the feat in a six-hole stretch — holing out twice with the same club.

Miller, who is a 20+ handicapper, was playing at the Cortez Course in Hot Springs, Arkansas, and used a six iron for both his ace on the 135 yard 12th hole and 138 yard 17th.

Speaking to Kark.com, Miller talked about how his first ace was a perfect strike and the emotions he felt when it happened.

“When the first one went in on the 12th hole, I was really excited. It was a great shot over the front bunker onto the green; it bounced once or twice and went into the cup. We all jumped and shouted.”

While, his second ace of the day was more relatable, with Miller calling it a “total fluke”.

“I sculled my tee shot on 17. It never got much off the ground and hit the ground only about 70 or 80 yards from the tee. Since the ground was dry and the hill sloped downwards, the ball continued to roll. It rolled past the front left bunker guarding the green and rolled onto the green.

Once the ball got onto the green, one of my playing partners yelled it’s going to go into the hole – and damned if it didn’t. I was thrilled but couldn’t believe such a lousy shot ended up in the hole.”

Miller’s only other hole in one came 45 years ago, and two days before his achievement he said he also shot his age on the course.

Known as the “Traveling Guy”, Miller once played in every state in one year, documenting the journey in his book “Golfing the U.S: Reflections on a 50-Week, 50-State Golf Odyssey.”
