LEXINGTON, Ky. (July 1, 2019) – The 2019 Barbasol PGA Championship returns to Nicholasville's Keene Trace Golf Club July 18-21. To help make the tournament a success, volunteers are needed for a variety of positions both on and off the course.

“More than 1,000 volunteers help bring the Barbasol Championship to life ever year,” said Bryan Pettigrew, tournament director. “They are truly the heartbeat of the tournament and allow us to allocate essential resources to the five local charities we’re supporting this year through Caddie127 – we couldn’t do it without them.”

Volunteer registration for the 2019 PGA TOUR Barbasol Championship is now open at barbasolchampionship.com/volunteer/. Golf knowledge isn’t required to volunteer; in fact, the tournament has a variety of opportunities for golfers and non-golfers alike.

Volunteer assignments range from on-course marshals, standard bearers and TV spotters to merchandise volunteers, shuttle drivers, Pro-Am operations and more. A full list of committees can be viewed at barbasolchampionship.com/volunteer/. Committees are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
