Miami Valley Golf

 Congratulations to Sarah Willis! 
After winning the local qualifier, Sarah has now won the Illinois regional chip, drive, and putt competition. The regional champions in each of the boys and girls divisions from the four age categories will advance to the finals, which will be held at Augusta National the Sunday before the Masters Tournament, April 6, 2014. The Championship finals will be produced and broadcast by Golf Channel.
What is chip, drive and putt?  

It was created  in an effort to promote interest and participation in the game of golf and the Masters Tournament Foundation.  The competition consists of 4 age groups, each participating in 3 skills. Participants will accumulate points in each skill. The participant with the highest number of accumulated points will be declared the Overall Champion of his or her age category.

All championship scoring will be based on a 25-point-per-shot basis, with each participant taking three shots per skill. Each participant will accumulate points per shot in all three skills (maximum of 75 points per skill = 25 points per shot x 3)
Chipping 
1.     Each participant will attempt three 10-15 yard shots at the scoring hole. All shots will be measured from the center of the hole with a string clearly marking the scoring rings.
2.     The difficulty of the shot will increase with age (A relatively flat lie with little to no break for U9 year olds and an uneven lie with medium break to the chip for 14-15 year olds) 
3.     A ball coming to rest on any of the scoring lines will be scored in the higher of the two point rings.
Driving 
1.     30-yard wide fairway – all shots must finish in the fairway to score points. 
2.     Flags marking both sides of the fairway at 25-yard increments beginning at 100 yards.
3.     A ball coming to rest on any of the boundary lines is considered in bounds.
Putting 
1.     Each participant will attempt one putt from each distance (6 feet, 15 feet and 30 feet). Putts will be measured from the center of the hole with a string clearly marking the scoring rings.
2.     The difficulty of the putts will increase with age (Relatively flat putts with little to no break for U9 year olds with putts that increase in break as we advance to the 14-15 year olds).
3.     A ball coming to rest on any of the scoring lines will be scored in the higher of the two point rings. 
Sarah finished with 23 points for driving, 40 points for chipping, and 65 points for putting.   Congratulations again, Sarah!!!
