By Kevin Casey, author for Golfweek SAN DIEGO – Tiger Woods got it going Sunday afternoon, but it was way too late to make much noise this week. Still, it was a nice final round for Woods. He closed in 5-under 31 at Torrey Pines’ South Course for a 5-under 67. That Sunday score pushed […]

We called ourselves “The First Five.” That summer of 2008, Avni, Omar, Pau, Stephanie and I (thought we) were the coolest kids at the TGR Learning Lab. In our pre-planned, color-coordinated outfits, we assisted teachers and students in building mouse trap cars and launching rockets.
Interspersed with all the fun, we learned from community and business leaders how to build our résumés, network with professionals and present with confidence. I’m not entirely sure, but I think that was the last time I ended a presentation with an awkward grin and a “…So yeah.” In my current position as an Academic Counselor at UC Irvine, I enjoy mentoring students through college and toward their graduate school and career goals.

2018 has been a year with many highlights for TGR Foundation. Our programs and events continued to perform extremely well, allowing us to reach milestones and achieve ambitious goals. Although we’ve celebrated expansions within each of our programs domestically and internationally, I think our most important accomplishment in 2018 was codifying TGR Foundation’s mission, vision and values – the strategic framework that guides all that we do. That framework is critical to the success and long-term viability of any organization. If carefully created and truly followed, it defines who you are, what you do and how you do it, which in turn ensures a sustainable enterprise that can succeed for generations.
As a 13 year-old junior golfer who has been playing the game for 5 years, I know firsthand that golf can be a frustrating and lonely sport sometimes. It wasn’t until my mom found the TGR Learning Lab (TGRLL) when I was ten years old that I really enjoyed playing and practicing golf.
