Drive: Hit the Tee Shot that Sets you up for Success
Chip: Practice Phil Michelson’s Hinge & Hold Technique
Putt: Work on your SHORT GAME, with PGA.COM’S BEST PRACTICE GREEN ROUTINE
“It is important, regardless the grip you employ, that your hands work as one.
If your alignment is poor and you have a faulty putting stroke, being a great putt reader is irrelevant.
A good putter keeps the body still and the blade square by never allowing the left wrist to break down. The putterhead never passes the left hand.
A pre-putt routine helps you stay nice and relaxed so you can make the best stroke possible.”
Open to All Boys and Girls Ages 7 to 15
SUNDAY, AUGUST 10TH: Check in at 4 PM. Competition begins at 5 PM.
Come on out!

1. Each participant will compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip, and Putt).
2. 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. First, second, and third place winners of each individual skill will also be recognized.
3. In the case of tie in the overall score, the putting rank will serve as the tiebreaker.
* All 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). The overall champion in each age category will be determined by the participant with the most points accumulated between all three skills (maximum of 225 points – 75 points per skill x 3).
Prizes will be awarded in each Age Bracket.
FOUR AGE CATEGORIES: 7-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15
