GREENSBORO, N.C. – The UNCG men's golf team hosted members of the First Tee of Triad for a free youth clinic Friday afternoon prior to the ninth annual Bridgestone Golf Collegiate at Grandover Resort. The Spartans gave golf instruction members of the First Tee after the practice round of the tournament and were invited to attend the 2013 Bridgestone Golf Collegiate to watch one of the most prestigious college golf events of the fall.
