Tesori Family Foundation to hold golf clinic for special-needs children at TPC Sawgrass

Written by Garry Smits for the Florida Times-Union

The Tesori Family Foundation is holding its first All-Star Kids Clinic on the First Coast since the week of The Players Championship in March. 

The clinic, for about 20 special-needs children from Duval and St. Johns County, will be Monday at 4 p.m. at the TPC Sawgrass practice facility. The children will be between the ages of 8-18 and Paul Tesori of St. Augustine, the long-time caddie for 2018 Players champion Webb Simpson, will be on hand along with LPGA player Amelia Lewis. 

The clinic, which has become a Players Championship Week tradition will offer safe instruction and activities for the children within the CDC parameters for the COVID-19 pandemic, with all participants required to wear masks. It is closed to the public

It will be the fourth All-Star clinic held since The Players, with others coming in Chicago, Charlotte and Greensboro, N.C.

Tesori and his wife Michelle have conducted the clinics at or near PGA Tour venues since 2014, along with local First Tee chapters. It started with one clinic the week of The Players and has grown to other Tour venues. The goal is to have an All-Star clinic the week of every PGA Tour event.
