One of my goals joining AllSportsTucson.com is to get people excited about the First Tee Program and all the benefits it comes with for young golfers in Tucson.
I want to help increase exposure to the program by highlighting these kids as I was one not so long ago. Another goal is to get more kids to sign up with First Tee.
I am born and raised in Tucson and grew up a member of the Ricki Rarick Junior Golf Program. I was also the 1995 winner of the Cindy Rarick Achievement Award.
I was a four-time all-conference golfer, 2003 Horizon League Golfer of the Year, and 2000 MCC Newcomer of the Year while attending Wright State University on a golf scholarship. I am hoping some kid is inspired to work hard because there are great opportunities out there.
Overall, I want to focus on kids and people who are making a positive impact within the community.
One of my latest videos (above) shows the golf swings of some of the young players who are involved with the First Tee Program. Some interviews with them are to come.
