ALL-STAR KIDS CLINIC
In August 2014, our family foundation partnered with Wyndham Worldwide, the Wyndham Championship and The First Tee of the Triad to host the first of its kind, All-Star Kids Clinic. The clinic was held at the Grandover Resort, hosting 25 children with special needs. To our pleasant surprise, the event proved to be an afternoon filled with smiles, laughter, and joy as we were joined by several PGA TOUR players and caddies who, even without an invitation, volunteered to help on this special day. At the conclusion of the event, multiple PGA TOUR players asked how they could be involved at future events and bring the clinic to their hometown. The All-Star Clinic has since grown to collectively serve more than 125 kids with special needs in Greensboro, NC and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL in just 3 years!
Our vision to expand the program to serve more PGA TOUR host cities became a reality in 2016 after brining the ASKC to our hometown in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The community loved it so much, the clinic returned in 2017 with a day filled with joy and laughter at Sawgrass Country Club alongside longtime PGA TOUR caddie Paul Tesori, special guest Jordan Spieth and coaches from The First Tee of North Florida. We followed that one up with a return to the first ever site of the ASKC, Greensboro NC at the Wyndham Championship in August. In fact, the All-Star Kids Clinic has been so well received, we’ve got plans to expand AGAIN in 2018 to a new PGA TOUR city. stay tuned or that announcement coming soon!
Next up in 2019 is our hometown clinic the afternoon of Wednesday May 9th during the week of The PLAYERS Championship. 25 kids with intellectual or developmental disabilities will receive one-on-one coaching from Paul, several of his TOUR friends, local PGA Professionals and coaches from The First Tee. Sign up coming soon!
