Drive, chip and putt qualifying opens

For 80 boys and girls to play Augusta National

Drive, chip and putt qualifying opens As the 2018 Masters quickly approaches, so, too, does a special tradition at Augusta National Golf Club that annually takes place on the eve of the Tournament. On Sunday, April 1, 80 boys and girls will participate in the 2018 Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals, where they will live out their dreams of competing on the same grounds as their favorite players and Masters champions.

Open to boys and girls ages 7-15, online registration for this summer's free local qualifiers for Drive, Chip and Putt is available now on drivechipandputt.com. Local qualifiers will take place in May, June and July in hundreds of locations across all 50 states. Participants who advance will go on to play in subregional, and regional qualifiers, which will determine the 80 National Finalists who receive an invitation next year to Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before the Masters.

Organized in partnership with the USGA and the PGA of America, Drive, Chip and Putt was created to provide every kid, of every ability, an accessible opportunity to connect with golf.

It's a great initiative and one that we wholeheartedly support.
