|2014 Volunteer Information |
The success of The Franklin Templeton Shootout is largely dependant on the support of volunteers. From marshaling to leaderboards, player shuttles to standard bearers, our tournament volunteers do it all with a smile on their face and a spring in their step.
Volunteers of The Franklin Templeton Shootout are an elite group. Not only are they a key element of the only PGA TOUR stop in Southwest Florida, but they are also joining Greg Norman in the fight against childhood cancer.

Following the distribution days, volunteers will be able to purchase any remaining uniform shirts. Anyone interested in making a purchase can sign up on a wait list during the distribution days or at the Volunteer Villa throughout tournament week. If you ordered an extra shirt on your registration form, your order will be available for pick up at uniform distribution.
The price will be $25 for Greg Norman Collection golf shirts. Purchases will be based on availability and a tournament representative will contact you should your name come up. First come, first served.
