Volunteers get special surprise at KitchenAid Senior PGA – WNDU

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (WNDU)- Events like the KitchenAid Senior PGA don’t just happen on their own, they take months, often years to plan ahead to pull it off.

It takes about 1,700 volunteers to put on this tournament. About 80 percent of them are local and 500 are here for the fourth time the tournament has been in town.

Friday afternoon legendary Jack Nicklaus paid them a surprise and thanked all of them for their time and dedication to help host the event.

Everyone could be seen holding their phones up high to snap a picture of Nicklaus. Although he was here for only an hour or two, he wanted to be sure to stop by and say thank for everything that they’ve done.

“We’re very thankful for them always have been thankful for them, volunteers of golf,” Nicklaus said. “It’s the backbone of what we do.”

Nicklaus said many of them don’t even see a golf shot for days after being here because they love doing what they do to help. He said he’s extremely grateful for them.
