Gardens freshman returns treasure, honored by First Tee, PGA
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) —
When you hit a ball under a tree - golf rules and etiquette say, you are not supposed to give it the good old foot wedge back into the fairway. Those rules - of policing yourself, is what led a Palm Beach Gardens freshman to give back 15 hundred dollars he found at the beach.
Monday Billy Reid was honored at the Players Championship at a special Monday First Tee event before the biggest stars in the golf world arrive to Ponte Vedra later in the week.
Reid gave the 15 hundred dollars back and said that he did it because of the core values that he learned being a part of the First Tee. PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan and First Tee CEO Keith Dawkins unveiled the new First Tee experience and discussed how the two organizations are working together to modernize and grow the game while positively impacting kids' lives.
