Local Juniors Set for PURE Insurance Championship
The PURE Insurance Championship, an official PGA TOUR Champions event, showcases participants across the First Tee chapter network and celebrates their dedication to the game of golf and living out their character strengths and values as they strive to make an impact in their local communities. The event is held annually at Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula and pairs one junior with a PGA TOUR Champions player and two amateurs, providing life-changing mentoring opportunities. To be selected, juniors are measured on their playing ability as well as their personal growth and life skills learned through First Tee’s programs. The tournament is televised nationally on Golf Channel.
Local players, all WJGA members, selected this year include:
Brianna Nguyen, Bellevue
Kylie Nguyen, Federal Way
Jay Sakagami, Renton
Colin Tounalom, Seattle
