DCP Registration Open 515x289

When you teach your kids to love golf, they win for a lifetime.

With the 2017 Drive, Chip and Putt Championship scheduled to culminate with the National Finals this April at Augusta National Golf Club, the United States Golf Association (USGA), Masters Tournament and the PGA of America have announced that registration for 2018 National Finals qualifying, which begins this May, is now officially open on the event’s website, www.DriveChipandPutt.com.

Now in its fifth year, this fun, free and nationwide youth golf development initiative invites boys and girls, ages 7-15, to participate in local qualifying opportunities set in all 50 states throughout the months of May, June, July and August. Boys and girls will enter to play across separate divisions in four age categories, with scoring centered around golf’s three fundamental skills (Drive, Chip and Putt). Top performers at the local level will advance through subregional and regional qualifiers in July/August and September, respectively. From these qualifiers, 80 finalists – 40 boys and 40 girls – will earn an invitation to the National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday, April 1, the eve of the 2018 Masters Tournament.

Local qualifying for the 2018 National Finals kicked off May 6, 2017, at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and will continue through the summer at 268 sites across all 50 states. The Northern California PGA will host 10 local qualifiers throughout our region during the months of June and July. Below you can view the 2017 qualifing schedule. Please note that player pairings and tee times will not be posted until the registration deadline has closed at 2:00 PM, five days before the qualifier
