Kirkland Davidson named 2013 Tour Volunteer of the Year

February 26, 2014

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The Tour has selected Kirkland Davidson of the WNB Golf Classic in Midland, Texas as its 2013 Volunteer of the Year.

Davidson has volunteered at the WNB Golf Classic since 2003 and served in a myriad of capacities over the last decade.  In recent years, he has concentrated on leading other volunteers, staking and roping the golf course, nightly trash collection, replenishing water and ice stops, and just about anything else he’s asked to do.  Among the duties he enjoys most is cooking for the caddies and players, which he does at least one night every year, and serving drinks to players, caddies and the public on the 16th hole on the weekend.

“Kirkland is a jack of all trades,” said tournament director Scotty Niemann.  “He’s there to do whatever is needed. It would be hard to run our tournament without him. Some days Kirkland spends 24 hours at the golf course, sleeping on site. And he accomplishes all he does while keeping in touch with his business clients throughout the day via his cell phone. You won’t meet a better person than Kirkland Davidson.  We’re lucky to have him on our team. All of us associated with the WNB Golf Classic congratulate Kirkland on receiving this honor.”

Davidson is a Central Texas native who has lived in Midland since 1990. His occupation is sales for an oil rental company.

“The Tour is pleased to recognize and congratulate Kirkland Davidson as our 2013 Volunteer of the Year,” said Tour president Bill Calfee.  “Kirkland is one of approximately 10,000 men and women who provide dedicated and unselfish service to our 25 tournaments.  Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Tour and are central to the Tour’s efforts to support charities and community organizations in places like Midland and all the other communities where we play.  Kirkland is clearly one of the special individuals we come in contact and whose commitment we benefit from.”

The 2014 WNB Golf Classic will be played April 24-27 at Midland Country Club.
