VOLUNTEER AT THE BOCA RATON CHAMPIONSHIP

Categories: News

Parents and students, this is your chance to participate in a PGA TOUR event. Volunteer opportunities such as standard bearers and committee positions are available at the upcoming Boca Raton Championship.

Bernhard Langer and John Daly – the most dominant and perhaps the most popular players on the PGA TOUR Champions, have committed to play in the Boca Raton Championship Presented by Sallyport at Broken Sound on Feb. 5-11.

“This has always been one of my favorite weeks of the year,” said Langer, who won the Boca Raton Championship in 2010 when he made eagle from a greenside bunker to beat John Cook in a playoff.  “To have my family and friends come out to see me play is not something I take lightly. It’s a great tournament and the players love playing at Broken Sound.”

Daly, who rose from obscurity as the ninth alternate to win the 1991 PGA Championship, has one of the most loyal fan bases in golf. The two-time major champion broke a 13-year victory drought when he won the Insperity Championship last May.

Last year’s tournament had arguably the best field in PGA TOUR Champions history, and tournament director Eddie Carbone sees a similar result for the first full-field event on the PGA TOUR Champions’ schedule.  Langer and Daly join a list of commitments that already includes defending champion Scott McCarron, reigning Charles Schwab Cup champion Kevin Sutherland and international stars Colin Montgomerie of Scotland and Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain.
