Training the Next Generation in Tucson

First TeeTiger Woods. Rory McIlroy. Christopher Meyers. You may not recognize the last name yet, but he became a golf sensation overnight. Junior golfer Meyers and his partner Lee Janzen were down by one stroke at the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, when Meyers holed out for a double eagle to win the tournament.

First Tee 2Meyers is the latest prodigy from The First Tee, a national organization focused on “shaping the lives of elementary school and other youth through teaching integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.” Pupils learn the fundamentals of golf, from swing to strategy. These lessons help instill First Tee’s nine principle values – honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, perseverance, courtesy, responsibility and judgment – into their charge’s daily lives.

First TeeIn Southern Arizona, First Tee has found an excellent home with their Tucson branch, with many of their students qualifying for the Nature Valley Open. Tucson and Scottsdale Golf Vacation’s own Jay Warren is on the board of First Tee of Tucson and is thrilled with the success of the group.

Tucson ConquistadoresFirst Tee of Tucson was founded in 2006 by the Tucson Conquistadores, who had already developed a successful junior golf program in the 1960s. By teaming with the PGA’s First Tee initiative the Conquistadores brought the program to the newly renovated Trini-Alvarez El Rio Golf Course.

Trini Alvarez golf course“I love the goal of learning the game of golf and the nine core values,” says Warren, who has made his love for the game his career. “I think this is an excellent way to get youths interested in the game and promote a brighter future for them.” The program worked for Meyers, the star of the Nature Valley Open, who will be attending Stanford in the fall, which produced golf greats Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie.
