Practice pays off for Addie Buss

Published 11:59 pm Wednesday, June 28, 2017

It was a busy Thursday morning for Addie Buss as she competed in the first round of the Drive, Chip, Putt Championship Qualifier. This was a first competitive debut for Addie in her golf endeavor but all of her hard work and dedication paid off as she advanced to the Sub Regionals in August.

A joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association and The PGA of America, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf.

By tapping the creative and competitive spirit of girls and boys ages 7-15, the Drive, Chip and Putt Championship provides aspiring junior golfers an opportunity to play with their peers in qualifiers around the country. Participants who advance through local, sub-regional and regional qualifying in each age/gender category earn a place in the National Finals, which is conducted at Augusta National Golf Club the Sunday before the Masters Tournament and is broadcast live by Golf Channel.
