Our partnership with the PGA Champions Tour TimberTech Championship continues to grow. This year our Coaches Gabbie Budd, LPGA and Nyla Sims accompanied students Emma Huber and Mia Baez to play in the Women’s Pro-Am on Monday of tournament week. The students spent the morning listening to a panel led by former LPGA Tour Player and current broadcaster Morgan Pressel. Emma and Mia were inspired by Morgan’s words, and both wish to continue her legacy by being fierce competitors on the course, and Game Changers off the course. Our ladies team was paired with Chapter Director Ken Duke for the Pro-Am. Ken made the experience one of a kind. Mia and Emma were both astonished by how straight and far the ball went when Ken hit it!
On Thursday of tournament week 60 students, parents and coaches attended our first ever Junior Clinic at the TimberTech sponsored by ADT. PGA Champions Tour player Tim O’Neal shared his life’s journey in professional golf, including the ups and downs. He never gave up and used our core value of Perseverance to shape his life. Tim impressed the crown with his incredibly long and straight shots into a 20-mph wind. Some of the students also tried their hand at some shots on the range. ADT handed out gift bags to all the students and Tim signed lots of autographs!
Mateo Muñiz attended the final round of The TimberTech Championship and had an awesome time.

Choi, Jerry Kelly, David Toms, and 2022 TimberTech Champion, Bernhard Langer.
