Artist spends hours on scoreboard at the Travelers

Posted: Updated:

If you've been to the Travelers Championship, you've probably seen the hand-written leader board.

Dave Koenig came all the way from Mississippi. He hand writes all of the players names and scores, at every hole.

Every day of the tournament, he's at the scoreboard at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell for at least 13 hours each day.

Koenig told Eyewitness News how he got into the business.

"I love golf. I put the two things together," Koenig said. "Something I can do good and something I love."

He added the longer that you work on the scoreboard, "the more natural" it becomes for the scorekeeper.

"There's no formal training," Koenig said.

Up until four years ago, the PGA required all tournaments to have a scoreboard like that.

In this digital age, it no longer required, but some courses choose to still have them.

Dave said believe it or not, he's never made a mistake.
