A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf. By tapping the creative and competitive spirit of girls and boys ages 7-15, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship provides aspiring junior golfers an opportunity to play with their peers in qualifiers around the country. Participants who advance through local, sub-regional and regional qualifying in each age/gender category earn a place in the National Finals, which is conducted at Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before the Masters Tournament and is broadcast live by Golf Channel.
Regional Qualifying for the 2017 Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is complete. See those results HERE.
In 2016, two NTPGA Junior Tour members advanced from the regional qualifying round to become national finalists after making it through the local and sub-regional rounds! These junior golfers will participate in the 2017 Drive, Chip & Putt Championship at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday, April 2, the eve of the 2017 Masters. Congratulations to our following members:
