The Volunteer Brief

The Ambassadors of the Wachovia Championship create a large support system for the event. The tournament, players, caddies, sponsors and patrons depend on them to make their experiences top notch! We asked some of our Ambassadors why they choose to volunteer.


Why did you decide to become an Ambassador at the Wachovia Championship?

“To see what you can do year after year to make the tournament better and definitely the people. These are the most appreciative people and staff that attend and work at this event.”
Christina Beckmann, Charlotte, NC
Hospitality Committee
Years of Service—3

“Getting to meet new people and interact with the different spectators and volunteers. It’s a lot of fun and Wachovia makes it a good experience.”
Wendy Brown, Lincolnton, NC
Marshal Rover Pool Committee
Years of Service—2

“I come back to volunteer because I have a great time every year. I enjoy seeing all of the friends I’ve made throughout the years and meeting the new volunteers. I also like working on Paula’s Pool because you never know what you’re going to be doing and who you’ll be meeting throughout the tournament. I’ve learned a lot about the logistics of putting together a successful tournament and look forward to volunteering for as long as I can.”
Sean Cronin, Matthews, NC
Paula’s Pool Committee

“The camaraderie between the volunteers is second to none. People are out there volunteering for the right reason.”
Chris Salley, Charlotte, NC

“Great golf. Great fans. Great event. Great for Charlotte—my adopted home town. I love meeting and assisting fans of all ages. Everyone has a story about golf or the Wachovia Championship that they share with you. Being able to help fans enjoy their day at the tournament and maybe becoming a part of one of their tournament memories motivates me to provide the best service possible. No matter what the weather or the day of the tournament, the fans are delighted to be here—and I know I am a small part of their positive experience! That’s a great feeling.”
