Golfer Could Have Playboy Model as Caddie at Masters

  • A hopeful golfer has secured the services of an unlikely caddie
  • Model Lindsey Pelas has accepted an offer from Grayson Murray
  • The rookie asked her to carry his bag in the Par 3 Contest at the Masters
  • But Murray faces an uphill task in trying to qualify for the year’s first major 

Augusta National, the host venue of the Masters, is not the sort of place you expect to find glamour models frolicking among the azaleas.

But that might be about to change at this year’s tournament after one golfer found himself a rather unlikely caddie.

Grayson Murray, a 23-year-old rookie on the PGA Tour, has secured the services, if required, of Instagram and Playboy model Lindsey Pelas, after making her a cheeky offer.

Murray tweeted: ‘Hey @LindseyPelas if I win next week in Houston will you be my caddy in the par 3 tournament at The Masters?’

Pelas is clearly a golf fan, as her reply was a short and sweet: ‘Obviously.’ 

Murray was understandably rather excited by the prospect: ‘Ayyyy! Looks like I got some motivation now!’ 

Instagram star and golfer Paige Spiranac has also got in on the act, offering Pelas golf lessons. 

Now for the bad news. Murray has not been enjoying the finest form recently, having missed his last five cuts.

The only way the North Carolinian can now qualify for the year’s first major is by winning the final event before the tournament, the Shell Houston Open, starting on March 30.

The Masters takes place from April 6-9 at the world-famous venue in Georgia.

The Par 3 Contest is the traditional curtain-raiser for the Masters, taking place on the day before the tournament proper. Augusta has its own Par-3 course which hosts the event, and many players view it as one of the most fun days of the year.

Family and friends often join the players on the course, with some caddying and some even hitting shots, notably Caroline Wozniacki and One Direction’s Niall Horan, who have both recently accompanied Rory McIlroy during the event.

No-one has ever won the Par 3 Contest then gone on to win the Green Jacket in the same year, although Murray would not give a hoot about the supposed curse. He’d already have proven himself the Master of chat-up lines after all.
