National Finals Scoring

The Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals is a new competition with no carryover from the regional competition. The event will be staged at several areas on the Practice Facilities and the 18th green. Participants will accumulate points in each skill. The participant with the highest number of combined points from all skills will be declared the overall champion of their age group/division.

Drive

  • Each player will have two drives to record his or her longer distance drive that remains in bounds. A ball coming to rest on any of the boundary lines is considered in bounds. The player in each age group/division with the longest drive will receive 10 points and be declared the winner of the Drive Championship. The player with the second longest distance will receive 9 points, and so on, all the way down to 1 point. In the event of a tie for first place, the winner will be determined by a playoff drive. All other ties will have points combined and split.

Chip

  • Each player will chip twice and his or her cumulative distance from the hole will be recorded. The player in each age group/division with the closest cumulative distance from the hole will receive 10 points and be declared the winner of the Chip Championship. The player with the second-closest cumulative distance from the hole will receive 9 points, and so on, all the way down to 1 point. In the event of a tie for first place, the winner will be determined by a playoff chip. All other ties will have points combined and split.

Putt

  • Each player will attempt a putt from approximately 15' and 30' and will record his or her overall distance from the hole. The player in each age group/division with the closest cumulative distance after the two putts will receive 10 points and be declared the winner of the Putt Championship. The player with the second-closest cumulative distance will receive 9 points, and so on, all the way down to 1 point. In the event of a tie for first place, the winner will be determined by a playoff putt. All other ties will have points combined and split.

Please note: In the event of a tie in the Overall competition, the winner will be determined by a playoff putt.
