PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., July 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Eighty First Tee participants have been selected to play in the 2023 PURE Insurance Championship Impacting First Tee.

This event pairs each First Tee teen with a PGA TOUR Champions player to compete for the pro-junior team title. The teens represent 44 First Tee chapters from across the globe.
