First Tee – Silicon Valley hosted our annual Chapter Championship tournament at Rancho Del Pueblo Golf Course on May 22nd. Twenty-seven participants competed in an individual stroke format playing against their respective skill level.
The Chapter tournament is a valuable event for our students. Our younger-level participants are able to experience tournament play, golf rules, and pace of play while our older participants experience competition from other highly skilled players. Our low-pressure tournaments are a great stepping stone for students to learn to use good judgment, set expectations, and how to manage emotions. We hope our tournaments help our participants to build more confidence in understanding tournament play and how you can create new bonds with players They’ve never met before.
“I had a great time at the tournament especially with my group being more experienced tournament-wise. It was great seeing how they played the game and also just socializing in general. The simplistic way my partners played helped me relax and enjoy the time more.” – Joshua J. Ace level participant.
The event concluded with a raffle and the announcement of our tournament winners. Congrats to the following winners of each level!
Ace: Norah Yang
Eagle: Joey Jang
Par: Andrew Leong
Congratulations to all of our participants for competing in our individual format with courtesy, integrity, and great judgment!
