The job of a walking scorer is to walk with a group and keep their score and specific statistics. You will be assigned to a group in the pro-am and the tournament. It is important that the walking scorers have an understanding of the game of golf, and are accurate with every player in the group. This volunteer role is expected to walk all 18 holes over sometimes very hilly terrain. You will be issued equipment which includes a handheld device. You will also have a voice radio that enables you to be in constant communication with the ShotLink staff.
At the completion of 18 holes, the walking scorer will accompany his/her group to the scoring tent, and if asked, read back the scores to the players in groups of three. The walking scorers should then proceed to the volunteer area to return their equipment.
The following Walking Scorer manual provides vital information and tips for all of our walking scorer volunteers:
