Sales Manager to volunteer at Ryder Cup
It’s going to be an exciting few months for our Twickenham Sales Manager, Stephen Johns in the lead up to the 2016 Ryder Cup. Not only does he get to watch one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar, but he gets to be at the Hazeltine National Golf Club working as a volunteer at the tournament.
The Ryder Cup is a golf competition between teams from Europe and the United States which is contested every two years. This year is the 41st Ryder Cup and Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota plays host.
As a keen golfer himself Stephen, pictured here with golfer Darren Clarke, decided to apply for the volunteer program last year and to his delight both he and his wife were accepted! They are likely to be responsible for hospitality, moving teams from one area to another.
Having also volunteered at the 2012 Olympic Games and The Rugby League World Cup, Stephen is accustom to the fast paced, electric atmosphere of a big tournament. We are all very jealous of Stephen’s quickfire American roadtrip, which will see him start in New York before volunteering at Hazeltine, then moving swiftly on to New Orleans, before finishing his once in a lifetime trip in Miami. We’ll be sure to post some pictures of Stephen at the Ryder Cup when he returns!
