Laura, a recent Downey High School graduate and a First Tee participant for the last eight years, was one of two Central Valley participants that competed in the 2012 Champion Tours/ The First Tee Open, July 6-8, in Pebble Beach. Laura and her playing partner, Kirk Triplett, were one of only 22 of the original 81 teams to make the cut and play in the final round Sunday. Laura was featured several times on the Golf Channel along with her playing partner who won the tournament.
"I am still trying to take it all in as it has been truly an amazing experience," Laura commented with excitement. "My expectations of The First Tee Open were far exceeded with all the wonderful events I was able to attend and the friends, coaches, speakers, and players that I had a chance to meet. I enjoyed every minute of it-- Kirk was absolutely remarkable to play with. None of this would have been possible if it were not for the continued support of our community and The First Tee network and my family. I can not thank you enough!"
