John Deere and First Tee celebrate the 2022 Power for Good contest winners for their efforts in their local communities, during the 2022 John Deere Classic. Winners include Jacob Davis from First Tee — North Florida, Manyi Ngu from First Tee — North Florida and Austin Picinich from First Tee — Seattle.

Deere and First Tee chose the winners from a national pool of applicants across the First Tee network based on the positive impacts made in their local communities through volunteer work, participation in local community events, honor student activities and extra-curricular programs.

“John Deere is proud to celebrate the work of First Tee within our home communities and across the golf industry,” said David Thorne, vice president, turf and utility business, John Deere. “Through the game of golf, First Tee has uplifted youth for 25 years and created a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive future for us all. The Power for Good winners are inspiring examples of the game-changing potential First Tee helps bring to life.”

John Deere hosts the First Tee participants at the 2022 John Deere Classic. The winners will have the opportunity to play and receive mentorship from a PGA Tour player during the pro-am on June 29.

In addition, the three participants will have the opportunity to watch three First Tee alumni: Quinn Riley, Cameron Champ and Austin Smotherman compete in the 2022 John Deere Classic. Each participant will also receive a $5,000 stipend for their higher education.
