Want to Volunteer? Ok, That'll Be $220, Thanks.

You think volunteering at a golf event is hard enough, wait until you hear this.

At the Ryder Cup this year, you have to pay to play help.

you might be surprised to hear that the PGA further pads its bottom line by charging each of its 3,600 volunteers a $220 admission fee.

That’s nearly $800,000 in all.

Well, that just ain't right, eh? You're helping control massive crowds all day long, in a golf event that brings out the most passion of any in the game, and you're paying to deal with these people? I guess the good news is if you want, you can upgrade your tickets!

For 16 hours of work the volunteers also receive daily access to the event with the privileges of an upgraded ticket worth $555.

Wow, what a great deal!
