For the second year, Jimmy Seamon will be at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Opelika, helping to make sure players and caddies are being transported to where they need to be during July’s Barbasol Tournament.

Seamon, who is the co-chairman of the shuttle committee, explained what the committee will do at the tournament.

“We will be shuttling the players and the caddies to where they need to get. Not actually out on the course, but just like the first tee box or number 10,” Seamon said. “We will also be carrying them to the putting green, to the driving range and we’ll be working Monday through Sunday. We’ll be responsible for getting the marshals to where they need to be before the players get there.”

The shuttle volunteers will work in shifts from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to Seamon.

Seamon, who lives in Prattville, said he started working at the LPGA in his city when he retired in 2007.

“I enjoy meeting people,” Seamon said. “You meet people from all over in these tournaments. I also started volunteering and working for the one in Mobile for five years until they lost that one.”

Seamon gave some advice to first time volunteers.

“Make sure you enjoy what you’re doing,” Seamon said.

People who would like to volunteer for the tournament can either go online to www.barbasolchampionship.com or email Volunteer Coordinator Selina Maddox at selina@globalgolfmanagement.com.
