PURE Insurance Championship
The PURE Insurance Championship is an official PGA TOUR Champions event at Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula, the tournament pairs 81 juniors of First Tee with a PGA TOUR Champions player and two amateurs. To be selected, juniors are measured in both golf proficiency and life skills knowledge. The tournament is televised nationally on Golf Channel.
