Drive Chip & Putt National Skills Competition

(boys and girls ages 7-15)

An Exciting Way for Kids to Test Their Skills

Boys and girls around the nation compete in a free skills competition in four age divisions: 7-9; 10-11; 12-13 and 14-15 (based on participant’s age as of the National Finals in April 2017).

Scoring focuses on the fundamental skills of golf – driving, chipping and putting. Each competitor has an opportunity to perform each skill three times.

The top performers at the local level advance through sub-regional and regional qualifying rounds, where 80 finalists (40 boys and 40 girls) earn an invitation to the National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club on the eve of the Masters Tournament.
