Drive, Chip, and Putt has continued to gain momentum in the world of junior golf since its inception in 2013! As the name suggests, kids compete to score points in those three facets of the game.
Next weekend you’ll have the opportunity to watch kiddos from all over the country compete in the National Drive, Chip and Putt Championship on the hallowed grounds of Augusta National Golf Club.
These participants earned their spot in the finals via local, sub regional and regional qualifiers during summer and fall of 2018. Registration is already open for kiddos to take their shot to compete in this FUN and FREE Competition with Qualifiers taking place this summer for the 2020 National Championship.
We are excited to see two (2) Sandhills area golf courses, Methodist University Golf Club and Pinewild Country Club, will host Local Qualifying for boys and girls, ages 7 to 15 on June 1 and June 8, respectively.
To help kiddos get ready for the local qualifiers, we have partnered with PGA Professionals and Methodist PGM Students to allow participants to practice their Drive, Chip and Putt skills with valuable guidance and instruction from local teaching professionals.
In addition, they will be exposed to the format of the Drive, Chip and Putt event, set up of each competition station and participate in a mock competition – allowing them to feel prepared to have a fun experience during the local qualifier in June!
Our ‘Get Drive, Chip and Putt Ready’ Series will take place at Gates Four Golf & CC on April 7th, April 14th and April 28th. With a second series at Pinehurst No. 6 scheduled for April 28th, May 5th, May 19th and May 26th.
Whether your junior wants to sign up to participate in the official Local Qualifier for Drive, Chip and Putt or is simply interested in seeing what it’s all about – these upcoming series are a perfect fit for additional exposure to the game of golf while picking up great tips.
