Throughout his volunteer experience, Muck has enjoyed hearing about the experiences of other volunteers and the chance to score for pro golfers.
Muck advises others to donate their time at the Open saying, “If you can spare the time, it is worth every minute of it.”
"you work three shifts or more, you get a free pass to play golf and I like giving my pass to one of my coworkers. The IT team usually picks a day to go as a group, by giving my pass to one of them this allows more to participate in the day of fun outside of work, and who needs it more than IT?,” said McLaurin.
For McLaurin, the fun atmosphere of the Open gives her the opportunity to talk with the players, caddies, other volunteers and the families that come to support the Open. McLaurin would recommend that everyone give volunteering a try because “you will have a blast, rain or shine.”
