Two Scots in volunteer greenkeeping squad for 

Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass 

Paul Armour, course manager at Dunbar Golf Club, and fellow Scot Craig Cameron from Golf Club St Leon Rot in Germnay, have been invited to make up a six-member group from the British and International Greenkeepers Association who will join the course preparation team at the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass, Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida from May 8 to 13 next year.
A total of 90 volunteers from 14 different counties join the home club's greenkeeping team to get the course in tip-top shape.

Following the final day’s play, before heading home, the greenkeepers will even get the opportunity to attempt to hit the 17th hole’s famous island green. In 2016 Richard Johnstone, course manager at Nairn Dunbar Golf Club, was successful in his attempt and won the actual flag used during the tournament as a prize.
