THE PLAYERS Championship announced May 8, 2019 that Tyler Oldenburg, a tournament volunteer since 2013, has been appointed as the newest volunteer vice-chairman. Oldenburg joins the four existing vice-chairs who, along with 2020 Tournament Chairman Andy Carroll, lead the 2,100-plus volunteer force that makes the PGA TOUR’s flagship event possible.
Andy Carroll shared what Tyler will bring to the 2020 vice chairmen leadership: “His strong work ethic, varied experiences as a volunteer and ability to lead others are extremely valuable assets for this position. I speak on behalf of all past tournament chairmen and my vice-chairs when I say we are thrilled to have Tyler join the volunteer leadership team.”
As Vice-Chairman, Tyler will oversee the Volunteer Services division, which supervises apparel, credentials, volunteer dining, office personnel, photography, supply, information, volunteer transportation and volunteer personnel.
“Volunteering at THE PLAYERS enables me to give back to the Northeast Florida community while surrounding myself with a sport I love, people I enjoy working with and a tournament that is truly one of the best sporting events in the world,” said Oldenburg. “It is an honor to be elected to this position, and I look forward to using my role on THE PLAYERS volunteer leadership team to grow the charitable dollars THE PLAYERS generates for local charities each year.”
Please help us in welcoming Tyler Oldenburg, new vice-chairman of THE PLAYERS Championship. Congratulations, Tyler!
