More than 1,000 volunteers bring Senior PGA to life

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. -- There are hundreds of workers and more than 1,000 volunteers out on the course at Harbor Shores doing everything from welcoming golf fans, to managing crowds, helping golfers and their families, to working the leaderboard, putting up scores by hand.

They are sort of ambassadors for the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, and you will recognize them from their blue golf shirts, many of them zipping around in carts.

Some of the volunteers have worked all six Senior PGA tournaments in Benton Harbor over the past 13 years and for them it's a great way to see some of the best pro golfers in the world up close and personal without having to buy a ticket.

But they are all sad to see this event come to an end after this weekend.

And everyone involved in the tournament says that something this large with tents, kitchens, concession stands, grandstand seating and activities set up everywhere simply could not be done without all those volunteers.
