    UL Golf OT Louisiana Open

    The Louisiana Open is looking for volunteers next weekend. The Cajuns are in Troy for baseball and South Alabama for softball. Helping out not only helps out the UL Golf team but also the baseball program as well. Danny Jones, in charge of the Louisiana Open, has been running the baseball golf tournament for coach Robe for about 6 years. I know coach is very happy with the relationship and would appreciate your help.

    It is $25 to volunteer but you receive an Adidas Louisiana Open shirt and hat, along with tickets to the tournament and parking pass.

    If you know how to score or know anyone that does, we are in need of walking scorers. You have a set of 3 golfers on Thu/Fri and 2 golfers Sat/Sun and you walk all 18 holes with them keeping score.

    This is my 7th year helping out and I can tell you it is something I look forward to every year. I hope some of you can help out or pass the word on to someone who loves golf.

    Thanks, for signing up and thanks for checking it out. I know they are always looking for volunteers and they bring a lot of money to Acadiana area charities.

    I go every year, but I never thought about volunteering. I figured they always had enough. Should be a good experience.

    I did green-side "quiet" signs for 3-4 years, then green-side scoring for a couple, and then did walking scoring for about 5-6 years and enjoyed it every time. If you're golf knowlegable, the walking scoring was the most fun. I'd actually take Thursday and Friday of the tournament off with vacation to volunteer. You actually walk the fairways with the players (just stay out of the site lines when they swing). It was a great time to do it as they didn't have the crowd of the weekend, and some of the golfers & caddies love to talk. If you're a golfer, it's great being close the guys who can really strike the ball. I scored for Ken Duke when he tied the course record of the time (61) when his only eagle was holing a fairway iron on #15 and his only bogey was on #17 (easiest rated hole on the course). That was really fun to watch.
