Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) As the Champions Tour golfers finish a hard days' play, volunteers will rush to set the stage for Tim McGraw. Organizers need to make room for more than 20,000 of his biggest fans.
Volunteers are well prepared, as Dave Pessagno explains, "We really have worked on it hard, we realized the numbers we would have and where we would put everybody."
Organizers are adding more bathrooms and concessions after the final hole is played. They will also add jumbo-screens at the 9th hole and 19th hole viewing areas for the crowd.
Some die hard fans said they will not settle for anything less than front row seats to see this country star.
"This is my 10th Tim McGraw show this summer," said Rose Wood,of Binghamton, "So I know the ropes, I know how it gets, every time I've been down in the pits and front row first time."
She was positioned in the front row at 4:30 a.m. Friday to make sure she got the perfect spot. Wood was the earliest on site, but wouldn't be alone for long.
"When did we get here?" asked Lauren Grier of Windsor, "Like 11:30 am. We're dedicated fans."
With the anticipation finally over, Pessagno said "It's exciting that we're part of the tour, it's exciting to see Endicott, New York, on part of the T-Shirt with all the other stops we made. Our little community pulled it off."
Fans, organizers and volunteers will be able to enjoy their hard work payoff to the sounds of Tim McGraw.
