(FIRST) TEEING IT UP

Hallsville High School senior Kinley Pessel, pictured with professional Glen Day, is at Pebble Beach this weekend to participate in the PURE Insurance Championship. She will play rounds at Pebble Beach and Spyglass with Day, who won the MCI Heritage Classic in 1999. The event starts Friday and concludes on Sunday. Pessel has been a member of First Tee Piney Woods since she was eight, and she is a two-time UIL State Tournament qualifier — finishing 16th this past spring.
