Giving Back to the Game of Golf

Homecare and Hopsice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach

Last month J.L. played in the Home Care & Hospice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. This tournament is a great opportunity to bring aspiring young golfers together with seasoned Champions Tour Professionals. For the professionals it is a good reminder that as ambassadors of the game they have a responsibility and opportunity to lead by example. The First Tee program is a fantastic organization that “provides educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.” The dinner prior to the event focused on the First Tee 9 core values of honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, confidence, judgment, responsibility, respect, perseverance, and courtesy. At the dinner a celebrity speaker, Champions Tour professional or First Tee participant spoke on each core value.  J.L. was impressed by the maturity of the juniors and their ability to speak in front of a room full of their peers with grace and inspiration. This tournament was a nice reminder for J.L. of why he plays golf – to promote and to give back to the game of golf.

J.L. was paired in the Home Care Hospice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach with First Tee junior, Annie Diebert. Yesterday, J.L. and Dawn met up again with Annie and her family, Major John Diebert and his wife Leilani in Washington D.C.  Major Diebert gave J.L. and Dawn a fantastic tour of the Pentagon. More on our trip to the Pentagon to come tomorrow.
