These include guidelines established by public health authorities. Please carefully read these guidelines before attending your Drive, Chip and Putt Qualifier.

  • Each participant will compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip and Putt).
  • Participants will attempt three shots per skill, for a total of nine shots. Participants accumulate points per shot in all three skills.
  • The champion in each individual skill competition will be determined by the participant with the most points accumulated in that particular skill.
  • The overall champion in each age category will be determined by the participant with the most points accumulated between all three skills.

Drive Skill

  • Each participant will attempt three drives from the same teeing area.
  • All drives will be played to a 40-yard wide grid and the ball must come to rest in the grid to score points.

Chip Skill

  • All chips will be measured and scored from the center of the hole with lines clearly marking the scoring rings.

Rules

The Drive, Chip and Putt Executive Committee, its agents and subordinate organizers, reserve the right to make rulings and recommendations regarding the Drive, Chip and Putt competition.

Click here to view the Rules and Regulations in their entirety.

General Overview

  • Drive, Chip and Putt is open to boys and girls ages 7-15. Boys and girls compete in separate divisions in four age categories: 7-9 years old; 10-11 years old; 12-13 years old; and 14-15 years old.
  • Participants will be grouped based on their age as of the National Finals. Participants must be at least 7 years of age, and may not be older than 15 years of age, on the date of the National Finals.
  • All participants will be expected to show proof of age should they advance to Regional Qualifying. Failure to provide a birth certificate or proper form of age verification at the appropriate time will result in that participant being ineligible to compete.
  • Participants may register to compete in only one local qualifier. Competing in more than one local qualifier will result in the automatic disqualification of that participant.
  • All participants must conform to the USGA Rules of Amateur Status. Participation in Drive, Chip and Putt will in no way affect a participant's amateur status.
  • The participant's clubs and golf balls must conform with the requirements set forth in the Rules of Golf.

Scoring and Competing

  • Each participant will compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip and Putt).
  • Participants will attempt three shots per skill, for a total of nine shots.
  • Participants will accumulate points in each skill (maximum of 75 points per skill). The participant with the highest number of points in an individual skill will be declared the winner of the skill in his or her age category. The participant with the highest point total in all three skills combined (maximum of 225 points) will be declared the overall champion of his or her age category.
  • Ties in the individual skills will be broken by first comparing the point values for each participant's third attempt in the skill, then the second attempt and finally the first attempt, if necessary. If the participants are still tied, they will share the appropriate place.
  • At local and subregional qualifying, ties in the overall competition will be broken by first comparing the cumulative point total of all three putt attempts. If the cumulative putt point total is the same, compare the point values for each participant's third putt attempt, then second putt attempt and finally the first putt attempt, if necessary. If the tie is still not broken, repeat the same process by using the chip skill next, and finally the drive skill, if necessary. If the participants are still tied, they will share the appropriate place.
  • At regional qualifying, in the case of a tie in the overall score, a playoff shall commence to determine the player advancing to the National Finals. This playoff shall include a single stroke at each of the skills (Drive, Chip and Putt).
  • Typically, from each local qualifier, the top three participants in each age/gender group move on to the subregional event. From each subregional qualifier, the top two participants in each age/gender group qualify to move on to the regional event. At each regional qualifier, one participant in each age/gender group will qualify for the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club.

The Drive, Chip and Putt Executive Committee reserves the right to adjust the total number of participants that advance per qualifying site.

Rules Decisions

  • In coordination with the Drive, Chip and Putt Executive Committee, all on-site decisions made by the host PGA Section staff and PGA Professionals administering local, subregional and regional qualifiers are considered final.
