I just wanted to thank you again for letting (my son) come finish the Par level with you and your team on Saturday. He was so excited and pumped up about golfing again so it was very nice to see.
(My son) is really enjoying himself. It’s nice to see him take an interest in something outside of videogames and computers. It really means a lot to us that your making this time especially for him.
There aren’t many opportunities for kids to learn a sport, while learning how to respect themselves and others. I get the most satisfaction out of watching what the First Tee has done for (my son) as an individual. The improved golf skills are a bonus. I welcome every opportunity that would keep him involved with the program.
"I first learned not to give in and persevere when I took up golfing as a hobby in 8th grade. I thought to myself if I invested time into it and worked hard I could possibly be on the team. So my Freshman year I (along with 30 or so others) tried to make the cut. I had below average clubs, no golf shoes, and hardly any talent. I didn’t make the team. Instead of thinking that was the end, I began to practice and got involved with the First Tee Program. Through the First Tee, I took lessons and gained some talent. My Sophomore year, I made Junior Varsity team. Between seasons, I worked to improve my game. My Junior year, I made the Varsity team. During the summer prior to my Senior year, I took a job at a golf course to earn some cash for college and get free rounds. This year I am on the Varsity team again and am now trying to make the Wesco finals this season.
Just like I accomplished my goal in golf, I will accomplish my goal of getting the education needed to excel in the career of my choice."
