Whether it is getting up close and personal with your European Tour hero or gaining an insight into the top class events of the European Tour, the Inside the Ropes Initiative makes it possible!

The Tour Players’ Foundation, in affiliation with the European Tour Caddies Association, will be providing the Inside the Ropes - Caddie Experience. This is your chance to become a European Tour Caddie for the day! Carry the bag of your favorite player during the Official Practice or Pro-Am Day of Europe's premier golf events. Experience first-hand how the best golfers in Europe and the world prepare for tournaments and handle some of the toughest courses in golf.

Stand shoulder to shoulder with your player, learn how he selects and plays the golf shots you would normally only see on television or dream of hitting. During what will be without doubt one of the most memorable days of your golfing life, your player’s professional caddie will give you an in-depth understanding of what it takes to be a European Tour Caddie, by hosting you during the day.

He or she will meet you, take you through their player’s pre-round routine, introduce you to your player at the start of their warm up and be on hand to share his expert knowledge during the entire round. You will also receive an Inside the Ropes - Caddie Goodie Bag which will include a bespoke Souvenir Caddie Bib, Course and Range Access Caddie Pass, an Official Tournament Yardage Book, European Tour and Tour Players’ Foundation Merchandise including an European Tour Memory Stick with the images of you and your player on the course and two Season Passes to the Tournament.

The Tour Players’ Foundation, the charitable foundation of the European Tour and its Members, are facilitating these wonderful experiences to raise funds for the charities around the world. The funds you generously give will be donated, through the Tour Players’ Foundation, to the chosen charities of the Player and Caddie involved, as well as the charity of the Tournament where the experience takes place.
