When the American Family Insurance Championship premiered in 2016, David Sreenan, a resident of Beloit, Wisconsin, was there. He served as course marshal and is now chairperson of the marshal committee. Each year, David purchases an extra volunteer uniform and secures a “quiet” sign, both of which he has autographed by professional golfers, including Madison-native Steve Stricker. David then donates the items to the Irish Open in Rockford, a charity golf outing he helps to organize.
David enjoys his volunteer leadership position, and as an avid golfer, he enjoys watching golf professionals up close. Among his memorable moments, David is proud to have once retrieved an unplayable ball on the 15th hole shot by Bart Bryant. It was Bryant’s triple bogey on that hole, according to David, that allowed Kirk Triplett to take the lead and eventually win the American Family Insurance Championship tournament that year. Bryant re-teed, and David memorably was able to keep the original ball.
Volunteers like David are sharing their motivations for volunteering as part of the I Volunteer Because initiative. This interactive onsite experience features volunteers at select tournaments and is part of the 2019 PGA TOUR Volunteer Appreciation Program Sponsored by Myrbetriq® (mirabegron).
Myrbetriq® (mirabegron) is a prescription medicine manufactured by Astellas Pharma US, Inc. Astellas first became a PGA TOUR sponsor in early 2013 and is proud to partner with the PGA TOUR as both organizations share a deep commitment to the power of volunteerism and recognize the powerful impact made by giving back in local communities.
