FWCD Golfer Heads to Pebble Beach

Senior Brendan O'Connell was selected to participate in the Pure Insurance Championship at Pebble Beach on September 19-24. This 54-hole golf event is a PGA Champions Tour Pro-Am Tournament that pairs 81 PGA Tour Champions professionals with 81 junior golfers, ages 15-18, from The First Tee Chapters across the country. O’Connell is paired with Billy Andrade, and the duo are playing Pebble Beach today at 2:18 p.m. CST during the TV coverage window on the Golf Channel. They tee off Saturday at Poppy Hills and, if they make the cut, will play Pebble Beach again on Sunday.
