Ariana Blagrove '23 Selected for PGA TOUR Champions’ PURE Insurance Championship
Congratulations to Ariana Blagrove '23 on being selected to play in the PGA Tour Champions' Pure Insurance Championship Impacting First Tee. Ariana is one of 78 youth selected nationwide to participate in the tournament in Pebble Beach, Ca. Participants represent 52 First Tee chapters from across the country and were selected by a national panel of judges based on their personal growth and development through First Tee’s programs, as well as their playing ability.
The event, in its 19th year, will bring teens from First Tee chapters to Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course for the PGA TOUR Champions tournament, Sept. 20-25. The annual event, hosted by the Monterey Peninsula Foundation, is televised internationally on Golf Channel.
Throughout the week, the teens apply their character strengths and the life skills learned from First Tee programs during the one-of-a-kind event where they are paired with a PGA TOUR Champions player and amateurs from the business world. Ranging in ages from 14 to 18, the First Tee participants compete for the Pro-Junior Team title.
