BOSTON, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Celtics Legend Dana Barros and Old Mutual Asset Management CEO, Peter Bain, and Linda Gibson, Head of Global Distribution, joined 2008 Masters Champion, Trevor Immelman, in hosting a golf clinic at the Black Rock Country Club in Hingham, Massachusetts for youths involved in the First Tee Program of Massachusetts.
"This morning was both fun and educational," Dana Barros said. "Anytime you can combine sports activities with valuable life lessons, the message is that much more impactful. It was also cool to watch a professional golfer show us all some of the finer points of the game."
The First Tee program is an international youth development organization that introduces the game of golf and its inherent values to young people. Through after school and in school programs, First Tee helps shape the lives of young people from all walks of life by reinforcing values such as integrity, respect and perseverance through the game of golf. The program emphasizes the importance of leadership skills and provides Old Mutual with the opportunity to continue its commitment to youth and building future leaders of tomorrow.
"It was an absolute pleasure for me to spend some quality time with the kids from the First Tee Program this morning," Trevor Immelman, Masters Champion, said. "I feel honored to have had the opportunity to team up with Dana and Old Mutual and be a positive influence for these kids today."
"Old Mutual is thrilled to partner with the Celtics and First Tee on a great program for the children of greater Boston," Peter Bain said. "Sports are a great way for kids to learn important leadership skills that they will use for the rest of their lives, and everyone here at Old Mutual is proud to be a part of the process."
