Upon their arrival, the 40 First Tee participants were given a brief history of the Met Open and information about some of the individuals playing in next week’s event. From there, the kids were split into groups to work on different aspects of their game. The coaches from the First Tee spent about a half hour with each group working on putting, pitching, and full shots at Glen Oak’s spectacular practice facilities.

The session concluded with lunch and gave the kids a chance to watch some of the competitors playing in the Pro-Am that was taking place. Adding to the excitement was a visit by Snoopy, the official mascot of MetLife. MetLife is the official supporter of the MGA Foundation and made the day’s event possible.

This event, the third in a series of youth clinics conducted annually by the MGA Foundation and MetLife, was an exciting and informative day at Glen Oaks for the kids of the First Tee of Nassau County.
