Drive-Chip-Putt Prep

Goal:
Provide participants the opportunity to hone their skills in the areas of Driving, Chipping, and Putting for the purpose of competing in the National Drive-Chip-Putt finals at Augusta National.

Program overview:
Using the criteria below we will host a DCP (Drive, Chip & Putt) competition to identify participants that possess the current skills needed to compete at the local and regional levels. Once selected, we will educate participants and families on the national qualifying process and supply them with the scheduled dates and locations to qualify events. The First Tee-Augusta will conduct DCP specific skills clinics to help hone your participants skills. In addition to skills clinics, we will also have competitions to help prepare them for the mental stress associated with scoring and spectated competitions.
