Theresa Shaw, Senior at Bear River High School had the opportunity this past September to be one of the lucky chosen by the First Tee to play on TV at the PURE Insurance Championship golf tournament at Pebble Beach.
In a blind draw her Championship Golf Pro was Kevin Sutherland also from Sacramento.

That day Theresa Shaw’s golf game was “on fire”. She shot a 70 for the round.
