Drive, Chip & Putt

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.

LOCAL – Top three juniors per each gender/age group move on to sub-regional
SUB-REGIONAL – Top two juniors per each gender/age group move on to regional
REGIONAL – Winner from each division move on to the finals at Augusta National


With the guidance of public health experts, the Founding Partners have canceled the upcoming #DriveChipandPutt qualifying season and rescheduled the National Finals for April 4, 2021, due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19.
