South Dakota has three qualifying sites for the 2019 Drive, Chip and Putt competition this summer. The first is June 4 at Elkhorn Ridge Golf Club in Spearfish. Moccasin Creek Country Club in Aberdeen will host a qualifier on June 22 and the final qualifier will be held June 29 at Elmwood Golf Course in Sioux Falls.
Drive, Chip and Putt is a free youth golf development initiative aiming to help younger generations begin their lifelong connection with golf by providing a fun, interactive platform for participants of all skill levels. Open to boys and girls ages 7-15, local qualifying will take place throughout all 50 states during the months of May, June, July, and August. Top performers at the local level will advance through subregional and regional qualifiers at some of the country’s best championship venues in July/August and September, respectively. The top 80 performers – 40 boys and 40 girls – will earn an invitation to the National Finals at Augusta National on Sunday, April 7, the eve of the 2019 Masters.
