Tournament Staffing

There are times when I get questions about why the course isn’t detailed like events shown on TV.  Here is photo of some of the volunteers at this years Players Championship.  Just a small sample of the staff involved in getting courses ready daily for major events.  The prep for this event is actually taking place shortly after the previous years event ends.  Any modifications to be made to the course take place and then they start it all over again.  At TPC Sawgrass the prepping never stops, at courses that hold events every 5 to 10 years the home course officials work with the PGA & USGA starting 2 to 3 years ahead of scheduled events.  It is a major undertaking every weekend.
