Volunteer Registration Open for the 2014 Tournament

Columbus, Ohio – Tournament officials announced that volunteer registration for the eighth annual Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship opened to the public today, Monday, March 3, at www.ncc-golf.com.

The 2014 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship will be held September 8 – 14 at The Ohio State University Golf Club – Scarlet Course and once again be the third of four stops in the Web.com Tour Finals.

“Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, said tournament director,” Kip McBride. “We are extremely proud of the nearly 700 individuals each year that donate their time to the tournament. They play an essential role in every aspect of the event and are vital in our goal to raise charitable donations for pediatric cancer research and treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Thanks in large part to the efforts of our dedicated volunteers, $750,000 was raised last year alone for Nationwide Children’s, and more than $3.4 million has been raised since the tournament’s inception in 2007.”

Volunteers have a variety of different areas available to choose from during registration. These areas represent the many tasks required to conduct a Web.com Tour Finals Event. A description of each area is available at www.ncc-golf.com.

All volunteers receive a uniform that consists of a golf shirt, cap and volunteer badge. Volunteers also receive breakfast and lunch for each day they work as well as tournament tickets for family and friends. In addition, all volunteers are invited to attend a catered post-tournament party immediately following play on Sunday, September 14. To cover the cost of the uniform new volunteers are charged a fee of $45.00 and return volunteers a fee of $15.00. These contributions represent an additional way volunteers help maximize the charitable donations the tournament provides to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

 

The Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship will feature a field of the top 75 players from the Regular Season Web.com Tour money list together with PGA TOUR members who are 126-200 on the FedExCup points list following the Wyndham Championship, and any non-members who earn enough FedExCup points to also finish 126-200. The field will compete over 72 holes of stroke play competition for a $1 million purse. At the conclusion of the four Finals events, PGA TOUR cards will be awarded to the 25 leading money winners from the Web.com Tour’s Regular Season, which concludes on August 24, as well as the 25 top earners during the Finals, with PGA TOUR priority ranking status for 2014-2015 being determined for all 50 at the conclusion of the Finals based on money earned in the four events. Golf Channel will broadcast Tournament coverage from Thursday’s opening round to the trophy presentation on Sunday.
