I support First Tee Atlanta, whose mission is to positively impact the lives of Atlanta's young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.  Thanks to everyone who came and said hello at John A. White Golf Course on their annual Community Day benefiting First Tee Atlanta on Saturday, August 20.   Great time, great weather, great cause and I played in the golf skills challenge and got in a round, too.  For more information about First Tee Atlanta and John A. White Golf Course, click here.
