A Round at Pebble with Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn

Contributing Blogger: Megan Conder, participant, The First Tee of Contra Costa

During my practice round at Pebble Beach, I had a very magical surprise.  I had the wonderful opportunity to meet and play golf with an outstanding Athlete and outstanding person, Lindsey Vonn.

I not only admire her for her awards, but even more so as a person. Lindsey Vonn was so gracious to everyone in our foursome and supportive of me as a young athlete. I was even more impressed that she played golf with such a positive attitude.

Lindsey Vonn speaks on "confidence" one of The First Tee Nine Core Values during the Legends & Leaders dinner.

She hit some great shots at Pebble!  She was so positive and seemed to enjoy the people, and the day.  After her golf, she presented an awesome speech at the Legends Dinner where she spoke of “confidence.”

It was a very motivating speech to all of us. What I loved the most, was finding out how real and caring she is to all of us young people.  She is a wonderful role model.

I thank Nature Valley for taking the time to coordinate her visit during the First Tee Open. Lindsey Vonn is a perfect example of a phenomenal athlete with true character. Thank you Lindsey Vonn and thank you Nature Valley!
