June 18, 2015 – Besides the fact that the U.S. Open is coming to the Pacific Northwest for the first time and the world’s best golfers are here, one of the most intriguing storylines this week is that a local nonprofit is emerging onto the national and international stages.
Originated in the Seattle area in 1997, First Green is being featured in a Public Service Announcement during the U.S. Open. The PSA will also run throughout this summer on all FOX Network broadcasts of USGA championships. First Green is the only entity outside of the USGA in the four PSAs.
This tremendous level of attention will introduce First Green to over 200 million viewers of the USGA broadcasts. (See First Green to be Featured in New USGA TV Campaign Airing During U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay.)
On Sunday, approximately 500 kids attended the USGA community event and participated in First Green science labs.
