Who could forget the 2014 Drive, Chip, and Putt Championship at Augusta National?  

We saw 11-year-old Leo Cheng drain a putt that Rory McIlroy would be proud of.  And 8-year-old Kelly Xu showed skills equal to Lydia Ko’s! As a result, she was named the first female champion at Augusta National Golf Club.

The Master’s Tournament, the USGA, and the PGA of America announced the qualifying schedule. 

This is for young golfers hoping to earn an invitation to next year’s National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club.
