A Day Worth the Wait

Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals make a welcome and inspiring return to Augusta National Golf Club.

About Drive, Chip and Putt

A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters TournamentUnited States Golf Association and The PGA of America, 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.

Local qualifying is typically available in all 50 states. For more information, please visit the Rules and Regulations.

How it Works

Participants compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip and Putt) and hit three shots per skill for a total of nine shots. Points are accumulated per shot at each skill. The overall champion in each division is determined by the participant with the most points accumulated between all three skills. For additional information on eligibility, scoring and more, please visit the Rules and Regulations page.


Each participant will attempt 3 Drives down a 40-yard wide fairway. Drives must finish in the fairway to score points.


Each participant will attempt three 10-15 yard chips at the scoring hole. Chips will be measured from the center of the hole with scoring rings.


Each participant will attempt one putt from 6′, 15′ and 30′. Putts will be measured from the center of the hole with scoring rings.
