Volunteers Get Great Perks For Help With Local Professional Golf Tournament

WOAY-TV (Oak Hill, WV): The rewards for volunteering for the LIV Golf Tournament at the Greenbrier in August are quite an incentive!
Chief Meteorologist Chad Merrill has the details:
A family-friendly professional golf tournament in our backyard is returning August 16-18 and they need your help; the best part about it, you get rewarded for your efforts!
Volunteer roles are needed for six committees to help the golf tournament run like a well-oiled machine and make this a memorable experience. The shuttle and fan services committee manages the lost and found tents and takes folks with disabilities and physical limitations to points on the course to see the tournament! If that doesn’t suit your fancy… you can be up close and personal with the players and help determine ball position during play, keep players moving without interruption, locate golf shots off the fairway, keep players hydrated during their round, greet guests upon arrival and answer their questions or help with the Pro-AM, player autographs and help volunteers with the check-in process, LIV wants to hear from you!
More volunteers are needed. Volunteers are only required to help for two shifts that last 4 to 6 hours.
There is a HUGE incentive to volunteering, including LIV golf gifts, food and beverage on the course, ball cap, drawstring bag and free food!

Golf is not the only thing going on! Bring the kids to the Kids Zone and music is played on the course, too!
If you want a firsthand review of how much fun this tournament is….DJ Fitzgerald of Oak Hill went to the Greenbrier tournament last year.

“There was a golf simulator, you know, you can hit some clubs into, you know, to a screen. It’ll tell you how far it went, what direction it went, and that kind of stuff. They even had two putting simulators, one that was just a flat like green and another one that had a little bit tilt to it. The guy that was there, he’s actually a pro from Pebble Beach Golf Course out in California, one of the most famous golf courses in the world, but he said that people actually have an easier time with the one that’s tilted and looks harder than the actual one. It looks easier. And, they were also doing something where they were taking people’s pictures and they were putting them together, like to make the LIV golf logo, but with little pictures of everybody. They had all kinds of games and stuff around there, too. And, the little village type thing they had, you know, and they were giving away, you know, sunglasses if you filled out a survey of what team you should root for. It really was extremely, family fan friendly. It was wonderful tournament,” said Fitzgerald.

Jeff Preast volunteered last year for the LIV golf tournament at the Greenbrier and shares his experience.

“Being a volunteer, it was fantastic. I worked with the Marshall Committee, which was great. We had a lot of great leadership, a lot of great people in that committee, working all around the course. But, it was a great experience. You know, something like this is great for our state, great to have at the Greenbrier. And, many people don’t know that, tournament teams are pretty small. So, without volunteerism and volunteer people working in many committees, these things don’t happen. So, encourage people to come out. It’s a lot of fun. You get to be around the best players in the world. Like I said, you get to meet a lot of cool people. It’s free to do. There’s a lot of great perks that come along with it. So we hope to see everyone in August.”
