"We are very proud to have our six participants selected to compete in the event. It is an opportunity and experience of a lifetime. This is quite an accomplishment and one that comes with hard work and dedication not only in their golf games but also in the way they conduct themselves outside of golf. Each of these young people has exhibited excellent character, community service and leadership skills and we are thrilled to have them represent The First Tee of Greater Sacramento in the event. "Angie Dixon, Executive Director, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento.
