On Sunday, February 16th, 100 lucky students from Compton Unified School District ‘s Clinton Elementary School and Tibby Elementary School participated in the Northern Trust Open’s Tee Off Fore Youth program. During this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, students saw golf at its best, as they watched 144 of the world’s top golf professionals in action at the 2014 Northern Trust Open, participated in the PGA Tour’s behind-the-scenes games, and had the opportunity to participate in a PGA Tour youth clinic led by the golf pros themselves.
LACEF sincerely thanks California Credit Union and the Water Replenishment District for helping the participating students look like real “pros” on the golf course by providing t-shirts for them to wear.
Also, a big thank you to the PGA Tour and Northern Trust Open for sponsoring the event and to our partners at Compton Unified School District for helping to make this day such a successful and memorable one for LA County’s students.
Check out these great shots of the day’s events!
