The Keepers of Woodmont Country Club sponsored our third annual mentoring outing today with the refreshing kids of the First Tee of Montgomery County program. Close to 25 kids and 20 Keepers and spouses shared a wonderful day of fun and friendship. Despite the dire predictions of the Doppler weather gurus the 50% chance of dry prevailed and the program went on without a drop of rain.

Kris Tschetter, the quasi-retired LPGA pro, was gracious enough to be with us and run clinics on the range and at the Sidney Harman Short Game area. Her sparkling smile and enthusiasm brightened the day for all of us and her lessons were equally valuable to the kids and adults who listened with rapt attention.

After a picnic lunch the afternoon was completed with an hour and a half of course time with the kids. You would be amazed at their ability to play and their comprehension of the etiquette of the game as well. The First Tee program does a great job in conveying
to these kids the full basket of what this great game is about.
