Want to caddie for Natalie Gulbis?

   Now that you've seen Natalie Gulbis on the golf course and as a body paint model in the new Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition -- it's okay to admit you checked her out online if you're not a magazine subscriber -- here's your chance to caddie for her.

   Yep, caddie one round for Natalie Gulbis in an LPGA tour event this year.

   It's a silent auction item up for bid Saturday night as part of fund-raising dinner being put on by the Palisades Episcopal School. Talk about good timing.

   "It's been really fun for us," said Karin Hughes, head of the five-year old school.

   Thanks for a sports marketing connection, Hughes and the school got the go-ahead from Gulbis to auction off one round as her caddie. It didn't hurt that the school announced the auction item at the same time Gulbis was making her Swimsuit Edition debut.

   If you'd rather caddie for Davis Love III, that's available at the auction, too. It's still golf but, well, different.

   Not willing to take your chances on winning the silent auction?

   Hughes said the Gulbis item can be bought in advance by anyone willing to pay $8,000 up front. If you're interested in the details, visit www.pescharlotte.org.

Could this be any more sexist?
