Read the inside scoop from Taryn Yee as she looks forward to tee it up at Pebble for a second time

Taryn Yee is all smiles at the 2009 First Tee Open at Pebble Beach

What an honor for the seventy-eight junior golfers from The First Tee that have been selected to play in this year’s Home Care & Hospice First Tee Open at Pebble Beach during Labor Day.  As one of those players and as a member of The First Tee of Greater Sacramento, I write this blog post about my experience in last year’s event.

Incredible, beautiful, challenging, out of this world, OMG!  Whatever you hear about The First Tee Open at Pebble Beach does not sufficiently describe the experience.  Last year’s tournament was perfectly orchestrated.  Juniors appeared on The Golf Channel, played with Champions Tour golf professionals, played with famous people like Bill Murray and George Lopez, or hung out with new and old friends.

The course played tough with the ocean breeze, elevation changes, narrow fairways, and small and undulating greens.  Then, something magical happened — Maybe it was because it was Pebble Beach, maybe it was because the stars were aligned, or maybe it was because something clicked – but the crucial part, all the tournament participants (players, volunteers, and spectators) experienced an awesome golf event. My advice to all this year’s The First Tee Open participants is be yourself, have fun, and treasure the moment!
