September 2022: Rye

Rye is an English springer spaniel who has been at TPC Scottsdale in Scottsdale, Ariz., since she was just 7 weeks old. Her duties include running the course every morning to help manage the crew, chasing birds, and greeting guests throughout the day. While most of Rye's littermates and relatives have become fantastic hunting dogs and companions, her grandmother, Nunners, was also a golf course dog just a few hours north of Flagstaff, Ariz. Rye has an exceptional temperament and boundless energy, and she loves her role on the golf course. 

Scott Hebert is the senior assistant superintendent at TPC Scottsdale, host of the annual Waste Management Phoenix Open. A seven- year GCSAA member, Scott studied golf course management at the University of Maryland and has worked in professional golf in various climates throughout the U.S. When not at the golf course, Scott and Rye enjoy hunting, cooking, and hiking with Scott's fiancée, Whitney Jo.
