Volunteer positions available for 2017 BMW Championship

March 14, 2017


GOLF, Ill. – March 14, 2017 … Golf fans interested in volunteering at the 2017 BMW Championship are encouraged to sign up soon, as more than 1,000 volunteer positions already have been filled for the event, set for Sept. 12-17 at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois.

Select volunteer opportunities are still available to assist in staging the BMW Championship – the penultimate event of the PGA TOUR FedExCup Playoffs – when it returns to Chicago’s North Shore, the Western Golf Association announced today. Volunteers perform key tasks inside and outside the ropes during tournament week, including welcoming thousands of patrons each day, assisting corporate hospitality guests and selling apparel in the event’s merchandise tent.

“The BMW Championship could not happen without the dedication and enthusiasm of our volunteers,” said Vince Pellegrino, WGA Senior Vice President of Tournaments. “Volunteers are essential to our success and our charitable mission to support the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards college scholarships to caddies from modest means.”

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and commit to work at least three shifts during tournament week. Shifts range from 4-6 hours in length, depending on assignment.

Volunteers are asked to purchase a volunteer package for $98. Valued at $293, the package includes:

•    One Peter Millar golf shirt
•    One Peter Millar outerwear piece
•    One BMW Championship hat or visor
•    BMW Championship commemorative pin
•    Two One Day Tournament Round Grounds Tickets
•    One Volunteer Credential, valid for entry all week
•    One invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party
•    Food and beverage vouchers

The BMW Championship is the penultimate event in the PGA TOUR’s FedExCup Playoffs, with the top 70 PGA TOUR players competing for an $8.5 million purse, including $1.575 million for the winner. Former champions include Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson, Justin Rose and Tiger Woods.

All proceeds from the BMW Championship benefit the Evans Scholars Foundation, which awards full tuition and housing college scholarships to deserving caddies from modest means. Since 2007, the event has contributed more than $24.4 million to the Evans Scholars Foundation.
