Congrats to Michael Shaw (Boys Golf) for his participation in the PURE Insurance Championship Impacting the First Tee
PGA TOUR Champions and The First Tee advanced 82 participants, ages 14 to 18, selected by a national panel of judges based on playing ability and comprehension of the life skills and core values learned through their involvement with The First Tee. The juniors were teamed with 82 PGA TOUR Champion players and 164 amateurs as they competed for the pro-junior title. Out of the 82 junior participants, 5 were selected to compete in The Coca-Cola Champions Challenge.
Michael Shaw, a Junior at AVHS and the captain of our Boys Golf Team, was invited to represent The First Tee of Tri-Valley Chapter in this challenge. Michael was paired with Mr. Paul Broadhurst, defending champion of last year’s PURE Insurance Championship Impacting The First Tee. The Broadhurst Shaw Team won $24,000 for The First Tee Chapter of their choice. This team shot 2 under in the 5 hole span in the most difficult alternate shot format on the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Michael brought home $12,000 to The First Tee of Tri Valley. We are forever grateful for this priceless experience to be a part of the 2017 Pure Insurance Championship Impacting The First Tee.
