MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Caddy For A Cure Announces Launch On Champions Tour At 2012 U.S. Senior Open

Charitable program expands with new tour opportunities

Caddy For A Cure, Inc., the opportunity to go inside the ropes and caddy for a day with the world's best players, recently announced the expansion of its program to the Champions Tour. The unique charitable fund raising program will be kick-starting its expansion with the 2011 Charles Schwab Cup winner, Tom Lehman, at the 2012 U.S. Senior Open Championship.

The 2012 U.S. Senior Open Championship will be played at Indianwood Golf & Country Club in Lake Orion, Michigan, outside of Detroit, July 9-15, and the caddy experience will be Tuesday, July 10, during the official practice round preceding competition.

Following an extremely successful career on the PGA TOUR -- where he achieved five TOUR wins, including holding the world #1 rank and the Open Championship in 1996 -- Lehman joined the Champions Tour in 2009, where he has eight victories and achieved the highest Tour honor, the Charles Schwab Cup title, in 2011.

"We are extremely honored to be expanding onto the Champions Tour this year, particularly with such an amazing player as Tom Lehman," said Caddy For A Cure CEO and program founder Russ Holden. "When I approached Tom he was eager to continue his support of our program on the Champions Tour. So much so he suggested the U.S. Senior Open Championship as the venue, knowing this golf major would provide an amazing experience for the winning golf fan and maximize
fund raising for our causes."

Caddy For A Cure has been offering PGA TOUR caddy experiences for charity since 2003, and LPGA experiences since 2010, with proceeds benefiting multiple causes. Benefitting charities include the PGA TOUR Birdies for the Brave military outreach, the PGA TOUR Professional Caddy Assistance Foundation, the LPGA Foundation USGA-Girls Golf program, the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, and each participating player's and host site's charity. All program caddy experiences may be found on the Caddy For A Cure website at www.caddyforacure.com, or contact Caddy For A Cure directly for more information, (954) 341-4600.
