Participant Ralph Kho Chosen for the 2019 Pure Insurance Championship

Categories: 2019, July, Newsletter

The First Tee of Silicon Valley (TFTSV) is thrilled by the selection of Ralph Kho to play in this year’s PURE Insurance Championship benefitting The First Tee at Pebble Beach on Friday, September 27th to Sunday, September 29th. He is one of 78 participants selected from across the nation.

Ralph is a long-time participant in TFTSV’s program and is well on his way to certifying at the Ace level, our highest level. Not only has he been dedicated to progressing through TFTSV’s program, but he has also been generous by giving back to the TFTSV “family” in a variety of ways, including as a Junior Coach and volunteer at many TFTSV events over the years. Ralph is truly a fine young man with a very bright future. He will be a senior at Junipero Serra High School this fall.

Ralph’s selection for the event is very timely given his pioneering, TFTSV class history at Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course, The Golf Club at Moffett Field, and now Baylands Golf Links (formerly Palo Alto Muni). He was one of TFTSV’s first participants as we expanded our classes to Palo Alto, then temporarily relocated our classes to Moffett Field during the construction of Baylands. TFTSV returned its classes to Baylands last summer and is endeavoring to make an investment to the facility in the form of a learning center and improvements to the range and practice areas.

“Ralph should be extremely proud (and excited!) not only by his selection to play in this tournament, but also by his dedication to TFTSV as it made — and continues to expand — its place in the greater Palo Alto area. Go Ralph!” said George Maxe, President and CEO of The First Tee of Silicon Valley.
