He gives us an inside glimpse of his experience this week:

The Nature Valley First Tee Open has been great so far! My Champions Tour professional is Brad Faxon and we played our first round at Poppy Hills. Throughout our round, we were both struggling a little bit with our putting but pulled it together at the end to shoot 2 under par. Brad was continually helpful in reading lines and helping out with club selection and course management. He also told some great stories about his days on the PGA TOUR.

Ardin and Brad played Pebble Beach during their second round finishing T12.

It was a surreal experience playing with Brad since I had always seen him on television. We also played with Blake and Mike Mycoskie, the owners and founders of the shoe company, TOMS. I’m very grateful for the opportunity The First Tee, Nature Valley, and all the other sponsors have given me this week to partake in this great event! I look forward to the rest of the week at Pebble Beach!
