Competition Support: Walking Scorers***
Committee Chairs: Doug & Stefanie Elsesser
Committee Chairs: Doug & Stefanie Elsesser The Walking Scorer role is a prestigious and critical volunteer position that requires mental and physical stamina, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of the game of golf. The Walking Scorer accompanies a group of up to three players to keep score, track specific statistics, and capture real-time data that informs all aspects of the ShotLink system.
Walking Scorers must have the physical ability to easily keep pace with their group across all 18 holes without a break and in varying weather conditions (rain or shine). Scorers should be comfortable using a handheld digital device to record each shot, as well as the voice radio with a headset that allows for constant communication with the ShotLink staff. Scorers’ “metrics” will be measured and reviewed each day with PGA ShotLink staff.
Walking Scorers must complete a 1-hour online training course at least once per PGA season, attend a 1-hour in person training the weekend prior to the tournament, and are required to work Wednesday’s ProAM and Thursday or Friday (before a weekend shift will be offered).
Volunteers are needed Wednesday, March 27 – Sunday, March 31
Age Requirement: 18+
