On Monday, August 6th, 28 Northern California Youth on Course caddies had the opportunity to caddie at the 2018 Ellie Mae Classic Celebrity Shootout at TPC Stonebrae.
YOC caddies received their pairings which included past and present athletes from the Oakland A’s, Golden State Warriors, San Francisco Giants, Oakland Raiders, San Jose Earthquakes, and the San Francisco 49ers.
Following the earlier announcement that Stephen Curry would be playing alongside the web.com players later in the week, fans cheered as his father, Dell Curry took the tee alongside Andre Iguodala, Lisa Goodwin, and Jonnie West.
A three-way tie going into the final hole of the 5-hole shootout between the 49ers, San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors made for an exciting finish. In the end, with the help of their pro player, the San Francisco 49ers team came home with the win and a check to support their foundation.
Hunter, a YOC member and caddie (pictured with his Celebrity Shootout player) explained his experience, “I’m fortunate enough to be a Youth in Course caddie. I started caddying over a year ago and got invited to caddie at the Ellie Mae Classic Celebrity Shootout. The loop Monday was exceptional. Caddying for Eric Wright was an experience I will never forget.”
