First Tee President Greg McLaughlin joins Bo and Farrell to discuss the success and challenges of the organization that has reached more than 15 million young people since its founding in 1997. While only at the helm of The First Tee since 2018, McLaughlin has closely watched over the years the organization grow into a behemoth in the game. Bo helped start a First Tee chapter in his hometown of Richmond, Indiana. And Farrell has challenged through his journalism and community work the First Tee's impact on underserved youth. Their perspectives guide much of this lively conversation with McLaughlin, who as the Tournament Director at the 1992 Genesis Invitational gave a 16-year-old Tiger Woods his first exemption into a PGA Tour event.
