Q & A with Sara
What is your dream foursome?  

My Dad, Nick Watney, Stacy Lewis, and myself.

If a song was played at the first tee, what song would be played for you?

Good Riddance by Green Day. I joined The First Tee not knowing much about it and I can honestly say that I have had "The Time of My Life"

If you were stranded on a desert island, what three items would you take with you?

My iPod, a book, and my golf clubs.

What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

When I was at a tournament in Las Vegas I ate caviar.

What is your favorite part about being a member of The First Tee of Greater Sacramento?
I absolutely love all of the people I have met through The First Tee whether it is other participants, volunteers, board members, or directors. All of them have impacted my life in some way and I know that they will always be there for me. The First Tee of Greater Sacramento consists of some of my best friends.
Congratulations Sara you are an outstanding member of
The First Tee of Greater Sacramento!
