January 23rd 2020 - 2020 Drive, Chip and Putt Registration Open in South Florida
 
ATLANTIS, FL – Registration is now open for the South Florida PGA’s slate of Drive, Chip and Putt qualifiers in the area.
 
The schedule of qualifiers, set to begin this summer at hundreds of locations nationwide, brings 10 qualifiers to the south Florida area and Puerto Rico, administered by the South Florida PGA.

Drive, Chip and Putt is a fun and free youth golf development initiative for junior golfers of all skill and ability levels, aimed at sparking a lifelong interest in the game. The initiative welcomes boys and girls, ages 7-15, to participate in local qualifying events in all 50 states throughout the months of May, June, July and August. Entrants will play in girls’ and boys’ divisions in four age categories, with scoring centered around golf’s three fundamental skills – driving, chipping and putting.

Top performers at the local level will advance through subregional and regional qualifiers in July/August and September/October, respectively. From these qualifiers, 80 finalists – 40 boys and 40 girls – will earn an invitation to compete in the National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday, April 4, the eve of the 2021 Masters Tournament. Qualifiers are conducted by all 41 sections of the PGA of America across the country.

Local qualifying begins Saturday, May 2, 2020, at the Leadbetter Academy in Championsgate, Fla. The full breakdown and schedule of 2021 Drive, Chip and Putt qualifying is as follows:
