Father and daughters bond over The First Tee
When Tremayne Days learned about The First Tee two years ago, he knew he wanted his daughter Abigail to become involved. At the time she was too young to join the program, so he marked his calendar to sign her up as soon as she was eligible.
“I just thought to myself, what a unique opportunity,” said Tremayne. “I grew up in the inner city in Florida and had always thought of golf as an elite sport. When I saw it wasn’t just about golf but also the nine core values, that sealed it for me.”
An energetic 9-year-old, Abigail plays at the Par level at the FM Law golf course. Tremayne has enjoyed seeing her learn the sport and watching her display sportsmanship. It’s been such a good experience that Abigail’s sister, Helena, has also joined The First Tee.
“I like that they have female instructors and that this isn’t seen as just a boys’ sport or just a girls’ sport,” Tremayne said. “Their best friend across the street plays too, so it’s a social thing for them as well.”
It’s also given this proud dad quality time with his daughters. Tremayne and Abigail recently played golf together at FM Law Park Glow Golf event.
“It’s a very special opportunity for my girls to play golf and learn the core values. It’s a great value,” he said.
