If you don't have a strong background in Rules Officiating this position may be best for you. As a Scorer you will assist the IGA-PGA tournament staff by collecting and checking scorecards after the completion of each players round.
Sometimes you may be asked to drive a leaderboard cart keeping and recording up to date scoring information for that group. Scorers will inform the tournament staff on scoring information as needed.
One way to gain experience as a Rules Official is to help out as a Spotter. You will be positioned on a hole spotting golf balls for participants. This volunteer will have access to a radio and can listen in on all rules situations that happen in the tournament. When rules situations occur on your hole you will call a rules official and witness first hand how to handle that situation.
The Host Club is in charge of securing volunteers to be starters at all IGA-PGA tournaments. If you are interested in being a starter please contact the host club and speak to one of the golf professionals.Duties include:
