Shot Location Equipment Operators (formerly Lasers) will be operating a fairway laser, fairway or greenside tablet, or act as a Rover. The fairway laser and tablet operators track the landing position of all shots in and around the fairway. The greenside tablet operators record the landing position of shots on and around the green. These important functions of the ShotLink scoring system enable real-time distance data and statistics to be immediately computed and distributed to scoreboards, TV broadcast, internet and mobile device applications. Volunteers should have a basic knowledge of the game of golf and a commitment to timeliness, accuracy, and attention to detail. Although volunteers will work in teams of 2 in each location, they each have specific/unique responsibilities. Effective teamwork and communication are essential in these roles. All location-based operators should be physically able to stand or walk around for the duration of their shift in potentially varied weather conditions (tablet operators are expected to walk around the green or fairway as necessary to gain accurate insight into the location of each shot without interrupting play.) The rover position is responsible for rotating through each of the location-based operator positions on a specific golf hole to provide breaks, answer questions, and provide assistance as needed. Laser Operators must complete a ShotLink disclosure form, complete approximately one hour of online training and an in-person training on Wednesday of tournament week.

Ball spotters assist the fairway location-based operators and/or greenside tablet operators with locating ball positions and identifying situations where a player’s shot might be obstructed. Tee spotters assist the fairway location- based operators with directional knowledge of a player’s ball flight from behind the teeing area. These positions require a basic knowledge of the game of golf, as well as a commitment to timeliness, accuracy, and attention to detail. Spotters are expected to be mobile and walk as necessary to locate shots in their designated area (normally one side of a golf hole). They should be physically fit and capable of standing/walking for the duration of their shift in a variety of weather conditions. Spotters must complete a ShotLink disclosure form, complete a short online training course, attend a short virtual training session prior to tournament week, and attend a mandatory in-person training session on Wednesday of tournament week.

Walking scorers should have the physical ability to easily keep pace with their group across all 18 holes without a break and in varying weather conditions (for reference, 18 holes will vary from 5-6 miles or roughly 12,000 steps). They should be comfortable using the handheld digital device they will be issued for data capture, as well as the voice radio with a headset that allows for constant communication with the ShotLink staff.
