Golfer Pays $50,000 To Caddie For Tiger Woods

How much would you pay to caddie for Tiger Woods?

Well, someone paid $50,000 for the privilege during an auction at the 20th Tiger Jam, Woods' charity fundraiser in Las Vegas.

The winning bidder will carry Woods' bag during the Hero World Challenge Pro-Am in December.

The 2018 Tiger Jam began on Friday 18th May at Shadow Creek Golf Course where Woods put on a Q&A and clinic on the range.

Guests then headed to the famous MGM Grand for a poker night before more golf the next day at Shadow Creek.

It saw Woods take on female Long Drive Champion Troy Mullins in a long drive competition.
