The ‘Master’ of all caddying experiences

12.15am 26th September 2007 - People

Masters and Ryder Cup legend, Ian Woosnam, is offering a once in a lifetime chance for one lucky individual to caddy for him on the Par 3 course at The 2008 Masters in Augusta.

He is donating this fantastic opportunity in support of Welsh cancer charity Tenovus, the official charity to Ryder Cup Wales 2010 Ltd, which will be auctioned off next month to the highest bidder at the Ryder Cup Wales Annual Gala and Awards Dinner on Thursday, 25th October.

Ian Woosnam is confident that golf fans will be interested in the prospect of attending such a prestigious event and sharing the experience with him. “There is no event quite like the Masters and winning the tournament in 1991 was very special and no doubt one of the highlights of my career.

“My planned build up to the US Masters this year was unfortunately disrupted by a back problem which forced withdrawal from the tournament. Now I’m looking ahead to next year and to achieving victory in the US again and am pleased to be able to support Tenovus by offering this caddy opportunity which will hopefully raise a lot of money for this very special cause.”

Rob Holt, chief executive of Ryder Cup Wales, said, “We are delighted to be able to work together with Tenovus and to assist with their fundraising efforts. We will continue to support Tenovus over the next three years in the lead up to The 2010 Ryder Cup from which we aim to leave a lasting legacy in this very special area.”

Readers who are interested in bidding for this exclusive prize and would like further details on how to register a bid shoul Cath Morgan at Tenovus on tel: 07740 486672.
