Six of El Paso’s top professional golfers participated in the 2nd Annual CF Jordan Skins Game benefiting The First Tee of Greater El Paso Saturday. (This event was rescheduled from November 2011.)

Current PGA Tour Members JP Hayes and Paul Stankowski re-joined with Chris Baryla to take on newcomers Gerina Mendoza-Piller (LPGA Tour Member), Scott Lieberwirth (UTEP’s new Golf Coach), and Steve Haskins (Nationwide Tour/Champions Tour Member).

The golfers provided a Skills Clinic, followed by a 9-hole skins game. The family-friendly event took place at El Paso Country Club with Gerina Mendoza-Piller and Kristi Albers hosting a Meet & Greet for young women who are part of The First Tee of Greater El Paso’s LPGA Girls Golf Program.

“The First Tee is an all-around youth development program—it’s not just golf skills. We make the golf lessons fun and age-appropriate, but more importantly, we teach our participants the 9 Core Values and Healthy Habits™ that will help make them successful in every aspect of their life.” said Albers.

The event also raised awareness for The First Tee of Greater El Paso, which offers programming at Ascarate Golf Course, Underwood Golf Course (part of its Military Affiliate Program), and Butterfield Trail Golf Club as well as a pilot National School Program in El Paso Independent School District which began in 2011 in 15 elementary schools and reached over 7,500 students. First Tee programs are offered to children ages 3 to 18 and include life skills, Nine Healthy Habits, and the 9 Core Values (courtesy, judgment, honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, confidence, responsibility and perseverance) in each golf lesson.

This year, pairings were decided by voting online at the organization’s Facebook page.
