First Tee Alum takes on Augusta National

We want to start by sending a huge First Tee — Upstate South Carolina congratulations to Anna Morgan of the Furman Women’s Golf Team on again qualifying to compete in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur!

Brief Bio on Anna

  • Fifth Year Senior on the Furman Women’s Golf Team
  • 2023 SoCon Female Athlete of the Year
  • 2023 SoCon Player of the Year
  • 3rd ranked female golfer in South Carolina coming out of High School at Spartanburg High.

The success of Anna has really resonated with our chapter and another awesome part of this story is that Anna is a First Tee Alum from here in the Upstate. Her hometown is Spartanburg, SC and she was involved with the Spartanburg chapter before the merge took place which inevitably created First Tee Upstate — South Carolina. At the time, one of the largest program locations for the Spartanburg chapter was The Creek Golf Club and this is where Anna took classes and trained out of! A quote from Anna’s mother: “The First Tee was a huge part of Anna’s beginning in golf and is a big part of who she is today.” As a participant, Anna also had the opportunity to accompany First Tee staff to Augusta to check out the Masters. Seeing that magical place through the eyes of a little girl was pretty cool, but years later that little girl was able to play the course and compete in The Augusta National Women’s Amateur!
