Honda Classic floating leaderboard

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. - As golfers try to avoid hitting a shot into the drink, two scoreboard changers say they feel fortunate to have their seats on the water.

Brandon Miller, a coach of the Northwood University Golf Team, and player Bernardo Suarez are enjoyed the game from an island.  The scoreboard they worked floats on an anchored slab, across from the 18th hole, with a beautiful view.

"You're not in the field, you're not inside the ropes, you're just floating here, having fun, " said Suarez.

As the numbers change, a voice offers up the numbers from a skybox.

"Listen to the voice that we hear, I don't know where it's coming from," Miller said.

To commute to the job takes extra transportation.   

"You get to see how it works really from the inside of the tournament," said Suarez. 

One job requirement is to watch where you step.  One of the men nearly wound up in the water with a stumble.

"It was a close call but we are alive and well," laughed Miller.

It's a peaceful and unique view.

"And you're out here by yourself, you don't have to deal with all the crowd and it's a beautiful spot," said Miller.
