The LPGA will debut the new Q-Series at the historic Pinehurst Resort which has hosted several prestigious tournaments including the 2014 U.S. Women’s Open, and volunteers are needed for this exciting new event.
The LPGA first announced that Q-Series will replace LPGA Qualifying School Final Stage, which was previously held annually in Daytona Beach, Florida.
Instead of 90 holes like the old Final Stage, the new Q-Series will be 144 holes. Players will compete in two, four-day tournaments with cumulative scores over the eight rounds for a $150,000 purse, which will be distributed at the end of the eight rounds.
The top 45 finishers and ties from Q-Series will receive LPGA membership.
Over 250 volunteers are needed to facilitate the revamped final stage of the LPGA Qualifying Tournament which will take place at Pinehurst Resort from Oct. 24-Nov. 3, 2018.
Responsibilities range from marshals and standard bearers to transportation and assisting fans. During registration, volunteers can select the committee they would like to volunteer for as well as the shifts they would like.
For a fee of $30, the volunteer package includes a shirt, cap, meals during shifts and free entry to the tournament.
This exciting new event is making its debut in 2018 and volunteers will get the unique opportunity to see the next generation of LPGA stars achieve their dreams of qualifying for the LPGA Tour.
The first week of the LPGA Q-Series presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina will be played on the George and Tom Fazio-designed Pinehurst Course No. 6 from Oct. 24-27, while Q-Series will conclude on the Rees Jones-designed Pinehurst Course No. 7 from Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2018.
Volunteers are the backbone of every LPGA Tour tournament, and they would not be able to stage LPGA Q-Series without your support.
Volunteers are needed for both weeks of play, to register please visit: http://events.
