Championship Volunteer of the Month
Volunteer of the Month of September, 2016: Scott Westwood
Scott Westwood is the Pacific Northwest Golf Association Volunteer of the Month for September, 2016.
Scott volunteered five days of his time in September’s Pacific Northwest Men’s and Women’s Senior Team Amateur Championship; he volunteered for each of the five days between the two events. He also volunteered three days of his time earlier in the season, giving him 8 days he spent helping this season. Scott was instrumental in helping the PNGA by stepping in and filling multiple roles for the association. During the two championships, Scott helped with player registration, pace of play/live scoring, and helped read, collect, and post scores. Scott has worked around the golf industry for many years as the Superintendent at Kitsap Country Club, as well as the Chevy Chase Golf Course (now known as Discovery Bay Golf Club in Port Townsend, WA. The PNGA is fortunate to have experienced volunteers, such as Scott, that can step in and help in many different capacities. We look forward to having Mr. Westwood at many more Championships in the coming future.
Thank you for all you do for the PNGA, Scott!
Volunteer of the Month of August, 2016: Andrew Tedesco
Andrew Tedesco is the Pacific Northwest Golf Association Volunteer of the Month for August, 2016.
Andrew volunteered his time in August’s Pacific Northwest Junior Boy’s and Girls’ Amateur Championship. He volunteered for each of the five days between the two events. Within the past two years Andrew has become a certified USGA Rules Official, which is where he spent most of his time volunteering during the event. When Andrew was not out on the course acting as a Rules Official, he spent time on the first tee as a starter getting groups rounds off on the right foot. The PNGA is lucky to have a dedicated volunteer that can step in and help in many different capacities, such as Andrew, and looks forward to having Mr. Tedesco at many more Championships to come.
Thank you for all you do for the PNGA, Andrew!
Volunteers of the Month of July, 2016: Chris and Michele Sales
Chris and Michelle were jacks of many trades while they helped out the PNGA at the Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur Championship at Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla, Wash. The Sales provided their help over six days at the championship, beginning with working at the registration table, then helping out on the course by monitoring pace of play and taking live scores, acting as walking scorers during match play over the final days of the championship, and provided assistance in the scoring area. The Sales have been incredible volunteers for the PNGA for many years, and are counted on every season to help make our championships run successfully. The PNGA is very lucky to have enthusiastic and willing volunteers like the Sales who will take on any task to help us run our championships! Thank you for everything that you do for the PNGA, Chris and Michele.

Volunteer of the Month of May, 2016: Derek Glazer
Derek Glazer is awarded the honor of Pacific Northwest Golf Association’s Volunteer of the Month for May 2016.
Derek played a vital role as the starter each day of the PNGA Cup. The PNGA Cup is a three-round championship that took place at Derek’s home club, Richmond Country Club. Not only did Derek act as starter, he was an honored attendee at the Banquets held during the event. Derek Glazer was the 2010 PNGA Distinguished Service Award winner for his already many contributions to the game of golf in British Columbia and PNGA championships. He has been giving back to the game since he began volunteering at his first event back in 1981.
If you have played in or been around PNGA events, hopefully you have been able to hear Derek’s unmistakable British accent on the first tee box. We look forward to having him starting at many more PNGA championships. Thank you, Derek!
