The First Tee of Maine: Getting girls into golf

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The First Tee is an international youth development organization introducing the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, it help shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values like integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf.

Right now, only about a quarter of the kids who take part in the program are girls. First Tee would like to change that.

On Sunday it is holding a Girls Golf Fair.

Here is a link on how to get involved.

In our story, Maine golf legend Abby Spector, and Elon University golf scholarship winner Monica Austin talk about what golf has taught them.
