When I read that I had to laugh. No wonder Mr Voneiff objected to Claire Hoffman’s criticism of the treatment of volunteers at the BMW tournament. He had a wonderful time! If, like me, you were unfortunate enough to be assigned to the Access Control Committee, your experience was nowhere near as pleasant as John’s. Driving pedestrians, golf carts, and shuttles on dusty gravel or glowing sidewalk in temperatures of 100 degrees Fahrenheit is not what should be expected of volunteers. I was almost taken out of a side mirror more than once. For future tournaments, the Western Golf Association should make access control a part of the security details paid for, rather than a voluntary feature.
