Drive Chip and Putt Birthday Surprise

Drive Chip and Putt Birthday Surprise

Posted on July 10, 2017
Park Hill Golf Club in Denver, CO hosted the fourth of seven local Drive Chip and Putt qualifiers on July 10th, 2017. A registered field of 159 players competed for three qualifying spots in each age bracket, two alternates and the opportunity to move onto to the Sub-regional Qualifier to be held at Walnut Creek Golf Preserve on August 19th, 2017. Winners from this event and prospective winners of future qualifiers will eventually be given the opportunity to compete at Augusta National Golf Club in the Drive Chip and Putt National Championship—a hallmark event of the Master’s Week festivities since 2013.

Among the victors was Jackson Rottschafer, of Centennial, CO, who gave himself a great birthday present by winning the Boys 14-15 age division with 116 points. Hannah Basler of Highlands Ranch, CO who competed in the Girls 14-15 age division, led all participants with the highest point total of the day. She scored a whopping 132 points, chipping in on her third attempt.
