Arnold Palmer Announced as a Trustee to The First Tee


Last week "A Toast to The First Tee" was held at AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where World Golf Hall of Fame member Arnold Palmer was announced as a Trustee in support of The First Tee Campaign for 10 Million Young People. Also at the event were The First Tee Honorary Chair, President George W. Bush, and Campaign Co-Chair and PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem along with The First Tee Chief Executive Officer Joe Louis Barrow, Jr.

The mission of The First Tee is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.
