Volunteer Spotlight: Earl Kisling

The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful group of volunteers who commit themselves to making the tournament one of the best stops on the LPGA tour. Each month, we’ll be highlighting a different volunteer chairman for a behind the scenes look at what it takes to run a world-class golf event, as well as get to know some of the hardworking volunteers who return year after year to the #NWAChampionship!

 

Earl Kisling is the volunteer chairman who oversees the Caddie Tent volunteers. He and his team work closely with the players’ caddies on tour—making sure they have what they need each day of the tournament and throughout the week. Earl and his wife, Donna, have been great supporters of the event since it began in 2007. Both have been integral to the success of the tournament in aspects that often go unnoticed to the general public, but certainly do not go unnoticed to tournament staff! 

 

Earl3Earl Kisling, Caddie Tent Chairman

How long have you been volunteering?

I have volunteered all eight years.

How did you get started?

After I retired my wife asked me if I wanted to be a volunteer and I told her that I would give it a try. Eight years later I’m still giving it a try.

Tell us about your committee and what your role is.

Presently I am the Caddy Tent chairperson and I have the pleasure of working with the greatest volunteers a chairperson can have. Several of the volunteers have been in the Caddy Tent for several years so I guess one could call us a family.

We see to it that the caddies and players feel welcome while they are at our championship, that they have all the information supplied to us by the LPGA, and that they have supplies they need for the tournament (refreshments, pencils ,towels, clean bibs with player name plates, etc.).

As for me, I am responsible for scheduling the volunteers and for making sure that all new volunteers receive proper training to assist the other volunteers, caddies and players. I am responsible for making sure that the bibs are taken to the laundry each day and that they are picked up each morning and organized based on the playing schedule for that day. I am also responsible for making sure that the caddies have clean towels, fresh snacks and lunch passes for each day.

What do you think is most surprising or unexpected about putting on a golf tournament of this magnitude?

I really can’t pinpoint any one thing that was a surprise or unexpected over the eight years mainly because every year seems to bring surprises. Maybe a better way to express it is, each year bring more fun than the previous year. This is very common when dealing with the caddies.

What is your favorite part about tournament week?

I don’t have a favorite part about the tournament. Every day is just so much fun being with the other volunteers, caddies and players, it makes the very long days well worth my time.

Do you have any favorite memories from over the years?

As for my favorite memories, at this point I have eight years of memories, some are very, very good and a few are not so good, all are mine to keep forever.

If you could do any other volunteer position, what would it be?

I really don’t have a desire to do anything other than the Caddy Tent, however, if my services is needed elsewhere, I would be happy to consider a change.

 University of Arkansas Women Golfers Embark on the Road to the #NWAChampionship

The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G guarantees one Razorback student athlete an opportunity to play in the 2015 and 2016 LPGA events in Rogers, Ark.

The Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G and the University of Arkansas Women’s Golf Team announced a partnership today to guarantee one student-athlete a Sponsor’s Exemption in the 2015 and the 2016 LPGA events. In addition, two qualifying spots will be reserved for the Razorback Women’s Golf Team for the tournament’s qualifying event. The tournament is scheduled for June 22 – June 28 this year with the qualifier round taking place on Monday, June 22.

“Since the inaugural Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G in 2007, Razorback golfers have received a sponsorship exemption or Monday qualifier spots each year,” said Harry Hardy, tournament director. “This year, we’re making the partnership official by working with the University of Arkansas coaching staff to implement criteria formalizing the process of selection for the sponsor’s exemption and qualifier spots. Our hope is to not only give female college athletes the chance to excel on a professional level, but also make the University of Arkansas a more desirable college to up and coming golfers.”

The criteria for selection include team rankings and academic standing for the golfers. The top ranked University of Arkansas player as of May 1 will be eligible for the sponsor’s exemption. The qualified player must write an official letter requesting invitation and be in good academic standing with the University. The second and third best stroke averages from the team’s competitive season will have an opportunity to Monday qualify for the official LPGA event.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for student athletes at the University of Arkansas,” said Shauna Estes-Taylor, head coach of the Razorback Women’s Golf Team. “We are the only collegiate golf program in the country to have a guaranteed spot for their players in a professional tournament such as the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G.”

The tournament’s title sponsor, Walmart, has supported the initiative as women’s empowerment is a key effort for the company.

“As the world’s largest retailer, Walmart believes it is our responsibility to help women realize their potential,” stated Gisel Ruiz, Executive Vice President of Walmart International People Division.  “Helping these young women recognize their potential on the golf course and in life is certainly something we as a company take pride in and look forward to witnessing over the months ahead.”

Each year, the tournament has the opportunity to give out two sponsor’s exemptions. Past exemptions have included Stacy Lewis in 2007, when she played as an incoming senior at the University of Arkansas and unofficially won the event, which was shortened due to rain. In addition, former University of Arkansas golfer Emily Tubert has played in the event twice as a sponsor’s exemption, and in 2014 made her professional debut at the tournament.

The tournament has partnered with KNWA & Fox 24 to keep fans updated on the Road to #NWAChampionship. Viewers can tune in to Razorback Nation to find out who is leading the race throughout the spring season and follow the University of Arkansas Women’s Golf Team on its quest to compete in the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G.

Joe Deschaine, Standard Bearers Committee Chairman

How long have you been volunteering?

Too many years to count! It is always a great time and I look forward to it every year. 

How did you get started?

I began as a Marshal on Hole 5 when I was looking for something to do. After volunteering as a Marshal, I found my way to the Standard Bearers Committee.

Tell us about your committee and what your role is.

I am the Chairman for the Standard Bearers. This committee is one of the best because volunteers get to walk 18 holes with each group of players while carrying a standard sign displaying each professional’s score in relation to par. Standard Bearers get the best seat in the house, walking inside the ropes with their assigned group for the entire round.

What do you think is most surprising or unexpected about putting on a golf tournament of this magnitude? 

The number of people and coordination it takes to put this event on is mind blowing. The event gets bigger and better every year. I’m excited to see what happens in 2015!

What is your favorite part about tournament week?

I enjoy it all….it's long days but there is never a dull moment. My committee shifts begin when official play starts so those three days are definitely a highlight for me!

Do you have any favorite memories from over the years? 

The people I’ve met, and seeing young ladies get inspired by talking and watching the professionals. One of these days, someone who volunteered in my committee maybe playing in this tournament.

If you could do any other volunteer position, what would it be?

I will do anything the tournament needs me to do! It is so much fun and I can’t wait to do it all again in 2015!
