Yesterday was a pretty cool day.
After attending a few of the First Tee open clinics I asked my daughter last week if she would be interested in going to one with me to check it out and see if she liked it. I explained to her what it was and she got a basic understanding of what to expect when I related it to School, but for golf.
I have to give The First Tee some credit. The people who run the clinics are great and I’m not just saying that because I’m doing a fundraiser for them. Oh yeah, I have to throw that in there too! Not going to get in a post about The First Tee and NOT talk about The Death Valley Challenge!!
Anyways, back to the topic at hand.
I was a little nervous at first tossing her out into the mix with a bunch of strangers. We’ve gone to the range together a bunch of times but this was a little different. I didn’t get to be right next to her every putt or swing and that was a little nerve-racking to say the least. After I saw her participating without a hitch though, I calmed down and let her just have some fun.
She had an absolute blast! The instructors were more than helpful and supportive in every way and she cannot wait to go again. After the clinic was over we went and got some more balls and did our own little clinic on the practice range. I had to get my work in as well!
Her first outing was a success and I couldn’t be happier. Not only for her but for me as well. Watching her face light up with that terrific smile after she hits a really good ball makes me feel fantastic! It’s going to be so much fun to watch her grow as a golfer!
After being fully engaged in how The First Tee runs one of their open clinic I couldn’t be happier that we chose them as the benefactor of The Death Valley Challenge, this is a great organization! I highly recommend getting in touch with The First Tee if you’re even considering starting your kids up in the game of golf.
