"I am going early on the days I work and staying late so I can enjoy the atmosphere. I have to work, but I get breaks so I can watch the golfers. You can step outside the merchandising tent and you are right there close to the 14th green. You can also see the 13th hole."
Webb, an avid sports fan and former high school coach, went to the PGA Championship when it was at Valhalla. He's never been to a Ryder Cup.
"This is a once in a lifetime experience. I don't figure it will ever come back to Louisville in my lifetime, so I want to enjoy this," he said.
He has seen a practice round at the Masters, which he called his ultimate golf experience until this week.
"This will beat that because of the type of players you will see and all the media coverage it will have. This is the best in golf I will ever see," Webb said.
The merchandise tent
He does have to work, though. The merchandise tent is a 5-1/2-acre work area that Webb says is like a department store.
"The thing that amazed me is how huge this whole operation is," Webb said. "It is just like a department store under the tent. When you are in it, you don't even realize you are outside because it has wood shelving, nice lighting and big-time air conditioning. It's like a nice store and it is very, very organized."
Ryder Cup officials told Webb there would be times the merchandise tent would be extremely busy.
"They said they would sell out, or come close," he said. "They said if you have enough money to fly over here from Europe to watch, then you are going to buy some clothes while you are here. I would guess if you wanted what I got and buy it at Valhalla, it would cost you $400."
Webb said Ryder Cup officials did stress two things to the volunteers.
"They talked to us about a lot of things we can't do. Our picture is not on our credential, but you can't give it to somebody else. They are very strict about that. If they catch you doing that, they throw away your credential," Webb said. "If you don't show up for one of your shifts, you are gone. They made those things very clear."
Webb also said it was clear he could handle his duties.
"They trained us one night on how to run the cash register. It is pretty much all automated. It pretty well runs itself," he laughed and said. "Plus, everything will be sold in even dollar amounts. They have that figured out to where I won't even be able to mess it up."
