The fourth annual Drive Chip & Putt Championship was held yesterday, 02 April 2017. This tradition at the Masters sees 80 young talented golfers pitting their skills against each other and Augusta National. As I watch these budding superstars perform, I am continually amazed at their composure, understanding of golf, and sportsmanship! For a list of all the results check out the interactive leaderboard. Well done to all the competitors!
The 2015 Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is open to boys and girls ages 7-15.

From the Drive Chip and Putt Website.Many of the past Masters champions were on hand to talk, cheer, and laugh with the young players. Having these great players on hand only added to the overall success of this national event. I enjoyed watching the future of golf. These young players demonstrated that anyone, at any age is capable of playing great golf. Congratulations to all the participants.
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
