The 2007 United States Senior Open organizers are still accepting applications for the time-honored event to be held at Whistling Straits from July 2-8, 2007. Alongside the more than 100 best senior golfers in the world and an anticipated 250,000 golf enthusiasts, 3,000 volunteers will be on-site covering a broad range of duties to ensure a memorable experience for all.

"Despite information that has been circulating, volunteers are still being sought for the upcoming championship," said Barry Deach, Tournament Director-Golf for Kohler Co. "Over 50 percent of the necessary 3,000 volunteer positions are filled, but there is still time to volunteer for the 2007 US Senior Open.”

This form includes committee choices, schedule preferences, uniform info, etc. The sooner you sign up, the better chance you have of getting your committee of choice and schedule of choice. There is a fee of $150 to volunteer for the US Senior Open, and the fee covers the cost of two shirts, a hat, jacket, onsite parking, Independence Club admittance and admission to the event. This package is valued at more than $550. For more information, call 920-565-6056 or e-mail usso.volunteer@kohler.com.
