OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — The Digital Ally Golf Tournament is a proving ground for young professional golfers.

They’re all shooting for their PGA cards.

It draws thousands of fans who go to watch the next big stars. It also takes lots of volunteers to pull off the four day tournament.

Volunteers pay $40 to work, and see the action up close.

They get a hat, a golf shirt, free meals and the chance to play a free round on the course Monday.

The volunteer coordinator, Cheryl Younger, doesn’t even play golf, but she says it’s all about the experience.

“This is my fifth year and it’s just being outdoors on a hot day in August and doing something different and just interacting with people who come here. The caddy’s come and hang out with the volunteers. The spectators. You just meet a lot of new friends and meet a lot of people.  It’s really a lot of fun,” said Younger.

The tournament is already signing up volunteers for next year. They need about 500 people.
