Drive, Chip & Putt
In an effort to promote interest and participation in the game of golf, in 2013 the Masters Tournament Foundation, The PGA of America and the United States Golf Association came together and created the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship.
Participants in the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship advance through local and regional qualifiers conducted throughout the United States. Competitors are comprised of boys and girls ages 7-15 and compete in separate divisions in four age categories. Your age is determined as of the Championship in April 2020.
The events entail each participant getting three putts, three chips, and three drives to try to earn as many points as possible. Awards are given out to the overall champions as well as each individual skill champion. This is a great way for juniors to get involved in golf and have a chance to go to Augusta National!
