Daily registration of all Section workers to ensure that all workers check in, confirm their assignments and, if necessary, pick up required supplies. Registration will be operated out of the Illinois PGA Hospitality Area.
PRACTICE RANGE, PRACTICE PUTTING AREA & SHORT GAME AREA
Members on this committee will be responsible for distributing range balls, identifying contestants and placing name plates behind them on range, check in/out lanyards used by Instructors, Managers & Manufacturers, and monitor the practice ranges each day to make sure unauthorized individuals do not gain access.
STARTING TIME BOARDS
Section Volunteers will operate the Starting Time Boards during practice rounds indicating who has teed off at what time. This information assists spectators and media who wish to follow particular Player(s) Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday-Sunday the daily starting times and pairings will be posted by the Section prior to the first starting time.
Spectators can visit the Lesson Zone sponsored by National Car Rental to receive a short basic lesson from a PGA Professional (Section Volunteers). The Lesson Zone will be open Tuesday- Sunday of the Championship from 10:00am - 2:00pm. An average of 80-100 lessons will be given to spectators each day. Each Section Volunteer will welcome one spectator at a time or a small group to provide a few simple tips on the basic golf swing, putting, and chipping. The PGA Professional can utilize this opportunity to grow their clientele and offer future lessons back at their club or facility.
We ask that you give yourself 40-50 minutes to park and arrive at your check-in location.
