Abraham Ancer donation funds creation of unique First Tee event

“We were extremely excited to launch this inaugural tournament as a result of the funds we have received from Abraham Ancer & the Presidents Cup,” said Carrie Kimbell, Executive Director of First Tee Greater San Antonio.  “Through his generosity, First Tee Greater San Antonio is able to provide even more local opportunities for these amazing kids.”

With Ancer competing overseas, the Greater San Antonio team was captained by Ancer’s friend and Korn Ferry Tour member Roberto Diaz, while two-time PGA TOUR winner Andrew Landry captained the Austin team.

What ensued on the golf course created lasting memories for the youth and their professional captains.

During Saturday morning 9-hole Four-ball matches, Captain Landry consulted Austin’s Meredith Speer on club selection at the very challenging third hole, and Meredith responded by carding her first hole-in-one from 159 yards. Luck almost struck twice in the same family as her brother Nicolas in the group following Meredith put his shot to two inches.

With San Antonio leading 7-5 entering Sunday afternoon’s Singles matches, it came down to the final two matches, with San Antonio’s Lindsay Lee taking a 2-up lead to the 17th hole and securing the deciding ½ point for her team. Final Score: San Antonio 11, Austin, 9.

As the memories from a historic conclusion in 2019 at Royal Melbourne slowly fade, the charitable mission of the Presidents Cup is still hard at work around the world. This time, the symbol of its impact was brought to life through fist pumps, high fives and plenty of smiles.
