It’s the opportunity of a lifetime—playing with the PGA TOUR player of your choice! Each year through the Wells Fargo Succeeding Together contest, one participant from The First Tee gets to do just that.
The essay contest, created specifically for the 30,000+ teenage participants of The First Tee, celebrates the impact The First Tee has on students across the country and allows participants to express how The First Tee has had a positive effect on their lives. The contest asked participants to write about the importance of having and being a part of a “Go-To Team,” a core life skill of The First Tee (read the winning essays below!).
A national panel of judges from Wells Fargo, The First Tee, and the Wells Fargo Championship tournament office select the ten finalists, and ultimately the four winners. Three first-prize winners receive a trip to the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship and one grand-prize winner receives the thrill of playing golf with a PGA TOUR pro during the tournamant’s pro-am on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
Each of the ten finalists will receive $500
The grand-prize winner of the Succeeding Together contest will receive a 4-day/3-night trip for two to Charlotte, North Carolina to play in the Wells Fargo Championship pro-am with a PGA TOUR pro as a guest of Wells Fargo. The winner will attend the pro-am draw party and have the opportunity to meet PGA TOUR pros, golf TV personalities, as well as attend the Wells Fargo Succeeding Together golf clinic.
