COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols

  • Keeping the health and safety of participants and everyone involved as the most important concern, all qualifying events will follow careful protocols to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission. These include guidelines established by public health authorities. Please carefully read these guidelines before attending your Drive, Chip and Putt Qualifier.

Competition Overview

  • 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

  • Each participant will attempt three chips from the same location approximately 10-15 yards from the hole.
  • All chips will be measured and scored from the center of the hole with lines clearly marking the scoring rings.

Putt Skill

  • Each participant will attempt three total putts, with one attempt from each of the following distances: 6’, 15’ and 30’.
  • All putts will be measured and scored from the center of the hole with lines clearly marking the scoring rings.

Awards

Tee Times and Additional Information

  • Tee times and any additional information needed for the qualifier will be shared via email communication after the close of registration.

Event Information

Starting Times and What to Expect

We are looking forward to having you participate in our local qualifier! A few things to note: 

  • The deadline for each event is five days prior at 4pm CT. 
  • Once the deadline has passed, the guardian whom completed the registration will receive an email with starting time information. (Email comes from Erika Pirkl, PGA). 
  • The competition consists of 9 total shots - so it takes about 15-20 minutes. 
  • Because we have eight different divisions, we follow this order: Boys 7-9, Girls 7-9, Boys 10-11, Girls 10-11, Boys 12-13, Girls 12-13, Boys 14-15, and finish with Girls 14-15. That way, each participant can leave once his/her age and gender division is finished. 
  • We do an awards ceremony after each age/gender group is finished. 
  • We award 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each skill and overall. 
  • The top 3 overall point-earners move on to the Sub-Regional. 
  • Start times are final - no exceptions. 

Erin Hills

Start times begin at 9:00am CT

The first tee time of the day will be at 9am CT, with the rest of the start times following every 2-3 minutes. 

Food and Beverage

Update

Please note: there will be no food and/or beverages for participants to purchase while at Erin Hills. You are welcome to bring a snack/drink for your juniors as the duration of the competition is fairly short. 

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).
  • From each local qualifier, up to 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.
