Young golfers will once again have the opportunity to get instruction from PGA Tour professionals at the Wyndham Championship this year.
The First Tee Youth Golf Clinic at the Wyndham Championship, like almost every other event in the country, was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 related restrictions.
But the youth clinic is back at the 83rd annual Wyndham Championship this year conducted by The First Tee – Central Carolina. The First Tee Youth Golf Clinic will be held at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at the Grandover Resort practice range. The clinic is open to junior golfers ages 7 to 18 and is free of charge. However, space is limited and only the 125 junior golfers who register first will be invited to participate in the clinic. Parents who do not have an existing First Tee – Central Carolina account may create a free account to register. To register go to https://conta.cc/3OeXlP7
The First Tee – Central Carolina CEO Mike Barber in a press release said, “The Wyndham Championship is one of our chapter’s biggest supporters. Thanks to their extremely generous donations, First Tee – Central Carolina is able to teach golf, core values, healthy habits and life skills to more than 1,500 young people throughout the Triad each year. Volunteering is the best way we can say ‘Thank you’ for all that the Wyndham Championship does to support our chapter each year.”
Wyndham Championship Tournament Director Bobby Powell said, “I think I can safely speak for everyone involved when I say we’re thrilled to be able to host The First Tee Youth Golf Clinic again. This clinic is one of the most important events we have during tournament week each year, and we thank The First Tee – Central Carolina for hosting the clinic and for their tremendous partnership throughout the year. The First Tee – Central Carolina students and coaches staff The First Tee – Central Carolina expo on Expo Row and serve as greeters in our VIP parking lot. We appreciate their support of our PGA TOUR event.”
Ah yes, traffic jams, drunks, rich a$$holes dressed like clowns, and little white balls littering the landscape. You can always tell when this circus comes to town.
