Drive, Chip and Putt 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, Drive, Chip, and Putt 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.

In 2019, thousands of boys and girls in the Carolinas will have the opportunity to earn an invitation to the 2019 Masters Tournament. This season the Carolinas will have 15 local qualifiers that leads to 3 sub-regional qualifiers. The top 2 players in each division at both sub-regional qualifiers are then invited to the regional qualifier at the Mid-Atlantic Section...and finally, the championship event at Augusta National on August 7, 2019.

The best part of all is that it's FREE and inclusive to ALL!
