Deutsche Bank Championship Calligrapher Scott Reilly

Housed within the Media Center, located behind the 18th hole here at TPC Norton, is the second of two Leaderboards. Volunteer Calligrapher Scott Reilly is back for his 4th Deutsche Bank Championship stint! He's in charge of transcribing and posting the player's scores as they come in from the scoring booths via Shot Link ticker tape. Scott said that "throughout the span of the event the number of letters and symbols that he posts to the Leaberboard is approximately 30,000!" There's usually a bit of a maylay here in the press room towards the end of the tournament but Scott's good under pressure and makes sure all of the writers and press have the info they need! Scott's an Assistant Golf Professional at The Country Club in Brookline, MA., an avid Sabers fan, is on quite a Chipotle kick and has a black lab named Sable.
