About 3.4K volunteers working PGA Championship in Wisconsin

Posted:

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Several thousand volunteers are working to ensure the 2015 PGA Championship runs smoothly in the Sheboygan area.
   
From checking bags to manning concession stands, golf fans say it's the ultimate volunteer experience. Although volunteers must pay a fee to participate, they receive golf gear and a credential allowing them to watch the action when they're not working.
   
Sheboygan Press Media reports that volunteers who worked during the 2004 and 2010 PGA championships at Whistling Straits were given first priority to sign up. More than 1,000 of the 4,000 past volunteers decided to return, and the remaining spots were opened to the general public.
   
Of the estimated 3,400 volunteers working this year's championship, more than 2,600 of them are from Wisconsin.
   
This year's PGA Championship runs from Aug. 10-16 in Kohler.
