The TimberTech Championship is a golf tournament on the PGA Tour Champions which features PGA Players age 50+. This year First Tee invited some of our junior golfers to participate in a "behind the scenes tour" at the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club in Boca Raton. Theo Consonni, Luke Sterijevski, Marina Sterijevski and Vivian Sterijevski were happy to accept the invitation.
The golfers were treated to a backyard lunch followed by a guided tour which included a visit to ShotLink to view how scoring is recorded in a professional tournament. They also learned about the intricate details and planning that goes into setting up the course for the week long event. Afterwards, they watched the pros do what they do best. Bernhard Langer took home the trophy this year.
Thank you so much again for the opportunity! Theo had a great time. Learning the behind the scenes, being able to get into the PGA tours mobile truck and learn about all the technology behind it. Also being able to get so close to some PGA players and watch their wonderful skills. Everything was very well organized and for sure an amazing and unforgettable experience. - Andrea C.
We had a lovely day at the TimberTech Championship. The behind the scenes tour was great. Marina said "it was really interesting to see how and where they do the scoring. " Vivian liked watching the professionals, but also like going behind the scenes as well. Luke said he especially liked watching the professionals drive because the ball goes so far! -Sascha S.
