The Mulligan and adaptive Programs

In golf, a Mulligan is a stroke that is replayed from the spot of the previous stroke without penalty, due to an errant shot made on the previous stroke.  The result, as the hole is played and scored, is as if the first errant shot had never been made.

At The First Tee of Greater Pasadena, our goal is to provide youth who have had a “bad shot in life” the opportunity for a redo through the game of golf.
