Adalyn Johnston and Cooper McLaughlin from The First Tee of Southeast Wisconsin have been selected to compete in the second annual Irwin Cup golf tournament, an interstate golf tournament held at The Jewel Golf Club in Lake City, Minnesota on Monday, August 6, 2018. The First Tee and The Jewel Golf Club named the event in honor of PGA TOUR Champions player Hale Irwin, a long-time supporter of The First Tee who also designed the course at The Jewel Golf Club.
The First Tee selected eight kids from each state’s chapters of The First Tee in Minnesota, South Dakota, Iowa and Wisconsin. Each team will compete in a Ryder Cup format for The Irwin Cup. Johnston and McLaughlin are The First Tee of Southeast Wisconsin participants at Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Fond du Lac.
“We are extremely excited to have Adalyn and Cooper represent The First Tee of Southeast Wisconsin as part of Team Wisconsin in the second annual Irwin Cup,” said David Cohn, executive director of The First Tee of Southeast Wisconsin. “Adalyn and Cooper are active members of the program at Rolling Meadows and have embraced The First Tee Nine Core Values on and off the golf course. They are very deserving of this opportunity.”
