The TimberTech Championship recently held at The Old Course at Broken Sound was an exciting event with a strong field of PGA TOUR Champions players. Congratulations to Darren Clarke who won the championship. Six Chapter students were invited to play in the ProAms.

Pictured top right, left to right: Sebastian Nachilly and Billy Reid with Tour Player Robert Karlsson. Sebastian and Billy both applied to play in the Pure Insurance Open at Pebble Beach, but First Tee players were not allowed to play due to COVID. First Tee home office invited both students to the ProAm.

“What an amazing day with Robert Karllson at the Timber Tech ProAm,” said Palm Beach Chapter student Billy Reid. “We discussed course management and his thought process with many shots. He even gave me some chipping tips that I was able to implement into my round as we played. This was a great opportunity that I am very thankful for to First Tee.”

Special SHOUT OUT to the tournament staff for making this opportunity happen for these deserving students.  We are very excited to be engaged with this premier golf tournament.
