PGA TOUR Superstore and First Tee – Silicon Valley Leadership Series Begins

The First Tee Leadership Series in partnership with PGA TOUR Superstore is an engaging and empowering five-week series designed to provide teens the opportunity to…

  1. Build relationships with local PGATSS leadership.
  2. Uncover their leadership values and strengths.
  3. Identify potential careers based on those findings.
  4. Develop goals on how to attain their desired career path.

Facilitated by local PGA TOUR Superstore leadership, the five-week leadership series will be the first opportunity in a unique leadership pathway designed specifically for First Tee teens in store markets. This year we have 11 First Tee – Silicon Valley participants that are in the classes led by PGA Tour Superstore – Cupertino General Manager, Brad Henson, and Assistant General Manager, Kate Nielsen. The first class took place on February 8th and the series will conclude with a town hall meeting on March 15th.

After the 5-week series of classes, 4 participants will be selected to apply for this summer’s Leadership Summit in Emigrant, Montana, and the Leadership Academy in Atlanta, Georgia.

What we’re saying about the PGA Tour Superstore Partnership

“PGA TOUR Superstore is a premiere partner of FTSV,” say George Maxe, FTSV President & CEO. “The store is owned by Arthur Blank, whose family foundation has given very generously to FTSV for many years. We’re in our 11th year of partnering with PGA TOUR Superstore, which first came to East Palo Alto in 2013 and now Cupertino in 2023. Over the years, we have held in-store clinics, gift wrapping, info session, quarterly used clubs drives, and more. FTSV is extremely grateful for this partnership.”
