First Tee of Silicon Valley participant and coach, Borina Sutikto received a $1,000 college scholarship from First Tee trustees, Ed and Lisa Vaughan. Borina applied to play in the PURE Insurance First Tee Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links, but the event was cancelled due to COVID. Accepted participants normally play the world-famous Pebble Beach golf links alongside a Senior PGA Tour in a nationally televised tournament. Borina’s strong golf resume – 2019 JGANC player of the year – made her a top prospect for the cancelled tournament.
Ed and Lisa Vaughan made generous scholarships available to rising senior applicants. Borina will be able to redeem the college scholarship for the school of her choice. She is in the process of applying to schools now and plans on playing golf competitively in college.
