Volunteer Roles
Stationary Forecaddies - Forecaddies will be positioned throughout the golf course and will be responsible for maintaining fair playing conditions for the players during the competition at all landing areas to help spot stray golf balls as well as facilitate the flow of movement for players, caddies, officials and the media. Marshal volunteers will be assigned at both The Home Course (5/22 & 5/23) and Chambers Bay (5/22 - 5/26).

Scorers - During stroke play, a scorer will be positioned at each hole and record hole-by-hole scores on a tablet provided by the USGA. Once match play begins scorers will be assigned to a group to follow throughout their round. This will require a volunteer to walk the entirety of the golf course. Scoring volunteers will be assigned at both The Home Course (5/22 & 5/23) and Chambers Bay (5/22 - 5/26).
