Professor helps Erin Hills prepare for U.S. Amateur

Professor Kris Schoonover spends her summers at a golf course, which seems appropriate given that she directs the golf enterprise management program at UW-Stout.
 
Schoonover doesn’t go to just any course, however, and doesn’t spend much time on the course itself. She is on the administrative staff at Erin Hills, the southeastern Wisconsin facility that will hold the 2011 U.S. Amateur and the 2017 U.S. Open.
 
With the 2011 United States Golf Association men’s amateur championship approaching, Schoonover has taken on added duties. She will be the assistant competition director, overseeing committees for volunteers, operations and transportation. The Aug. 22-28 event will have 312 players and an estimated several thousand spectators daily.
