Caddie for Kris Blanks as he returns to the Tour


PGA Tour veteran Kris Blanks is about to make his comeback after nearly a year away from the game due to a shoulder injury -- and he needs a caddie.

Blanks will be making his return at the Rex Hospital Open on the Tour in Raleigh, N.C., in two weeks. Rather than try to find a caddie at the tournament that week, he decided to look for a looper online, he told SiriusXM's "Maginnes on Tap" on Thursday.

No, not Craig's List, or whatever golf equivalent there is. He's turning the opportunity over to his fans. So, if you have June 18-23 free and can be at TPC Wakefield Plantation, email Blanks for a chance to win the job. Unlike the job Ben Crane offered through Twitter to caddie for him at a pro-am on the PGA Tour, this is for the whole week.

The winner will be announced on John Maginnes' show early next week.
