Developing the fundamentals of the game early in an athlete’s experience assists in providing the best opportunity in creating a long-term athlete. As the new golfer learns the fundamental movement skills of the game they also build overall motor skills helping them on and off the golf course.
Junior golf programs teaching the fundamentals in Southern Ohio:
Drive, Chip and Putt is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf. DCP is a joint initiative founded in 2013 by the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association, and The PGA of America.
By tapping the creative and competitive spirit of girls and boys ages 7-15, Drive, Chip and Putt 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.
