    Default Volunteers wanted for PGA Tour event

    They're looking for volunteers for the tournament if anyone is interested http://www.puntacana.com/coraleschampionship

    For those that haven't gone, it's a beautiful course.

    Sigel turned professional when he reached the age of 50. He joined the Senior PGA Tour in 1994 and won Rookie of the Year honors, when he earned 14 top-10 finishes and secured his first victory at the GTE West Classic. For the next five seasons, he finished in the top-31 on the Senior Tour money list. He won eight events; the last was the 2003 Bayer Advantage Celebrity Pro-Am. In the 2004 Champions Tour season, Sigel finished in the money in all 28 tournaments that he entered and had six top-10 finishes. During the 2005 campaign his best finish was 5th at the Turtle Bay Championship. He has career earnings of over $9 million. Since joining the Champions Tour in 1994, Sigel has been sponsored by global management consulting and technology services company Accenture

    and I don't recall him being as low as +3... I might be wrong....
    But +3 is loooow

    Many of the young'uns on tour aren't that good.....
    Many go pro on the Senior tour and do quite well.

    BTW: seems the tournament is looking for volunteers. One of our greatest Dominican experiences was volunteering for the Cap Cana seniors tour a few years ago. GJust fantastic! I was a "walking scorer" for three days assigned to a flight of four players for 18 holes. Alida held a fuzzy mike for Golf network going to whatever hole the network wanted. Treated us like kings, great food, fantastic time.

    If you love golf and have physical endurance, do it! Volunteer!

    I used to caddy back in the day on the Canadian Tour and it was a great way to spend 5 hours. In general there are three things you need to do.....show up, keep up and the most difficult of all...shut up.

    Forgive me if I'm off-base here...

    But why should anyone 'volunteer' for something that rakes in and pays participants millions of dollars?

    For many decades both the PGA and Professional Tennis have had volunteers for their events. The vast majority of the volunteers love what they did and do it again. If you play or follow those two sports you get an opportunity to participate and be near the pros that play it.

    Well worth doing if you have the time and energy.

    They feed you, give you some high-quality swag and a round of an expensive course.

    That's pretty good pay for a fun job.

    If this tourney was not in the middle of our MotoCaribe Tour season, I'd volunteer in a heartbeat.

    Precisely...
    The volunteers keep the costs down and allow a bigger donation to the charities..

    as with any charity event , volunteers make the whole thing fly...

    Can't you reroute the Motocaribe Tour for a Punta Cana tournament stop and put those bikers to good use as volunteers and let them cool off their motors too ? I always like to get off the bike for a day once my butt itched from a long ride.
