For one week during the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, legends of the game mentor the leaders of tomorrow. It’s a unique experience for teen participants of The First Tee to play alongside Champions Tour players at iconic Pebble Beach.

There is much anticipation for the teens around finding out which Champions Tour player will be their partner. At Tuesday night’s welcome party, the pairings were released! The teens were each given a brand new Adidas golf bag with the name of their pro tucked in the pocket.

Janane Tan from The First Tee of Greater Dallas shares her experience at the pairings party.

“As the first day of the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach kicks off, it was really exciting because we were able to find out who our pros and amateurs were going to be in such a short amount of time. Halfway though the dinner, we were told to open up the right side of our Adidas golf bags to figure out who our pros were. The First Tee was kind enough to surprise us with the name of our professional in our new golf bags.”

Janae was paired with three-time winner of the tournament, Jeff Sluman.

“After finding our bags, we were able to introduce ourselves to our pros and connect with them. I would like to thank Nature Valley for being the sponsor of this great tournament and giving us the opportunity to play at such a wonderful venue.”
