The Walking Scorer role is a prestigious and critical ShotLink volunteer position that requires mental and physical stamina, attention to detail, and a thorough understanding of the game of golf. The walking scorer accompanies a group of up to 3 players in order to keep their score, track specific statistics, and provide real-time data that informs all aspects of the ShotLink system. Walking scorers should have the physical ability to easily keep pace with their group across all 18 holes without a break and in varying weather conditions (for reference, 18 holes will vary from 5-6 miles or roughly 12,000 steps). They should be comfortable using the handheld digital device they will be issued for data capture, as well as the voice radio with a headset that allows for constant communication with the ShotLink staff.

- Must complete a 1 Hour online training course.
- Must attend a 1 Hour in-person training that occurs prior to tournament week.
- Must complete ShotLink disclosure form.
- Must be 18 or over.
- Should be available for the Wednesday Pro-Am and at least two additional tournament days.
