WJGA Juniors Head to Augusta for Drive Chip & Putt Finals
Three WJGA members, Kasey Maralack of Snoqualmie, Angela Zhang of Bellevue, and Maverick Stocker of Snohomish, are headed to Augusta National Golf Club to compete in the 2019 Drive, Chip and Putt Finals on Sunday, April 7th.
Drive, Chip and Putt is an event that is put together between the Masters Tournament, the PGA of America and the USGA. The event is a free, nationwide youth golf development program open to boys and girls, ages 7-15. Drive, Chip & Putt will test the competitors in the skills essential to playing the game of golf – accuracy in driving, chipping and putting.
Maralack will be making her third appearance at the Finals, also advancing to August the inaugural year in 2014, and then again in 2018 where she finished 2nd overall in the Girls 12-13 division. Both Zhang and Stocker will be making their first trip to Augusta, and all three players qualified via regional qualifying at Chambers Bay last year.
Live TV coverage of the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals will begin Sunday, April 7 at 5am PDT on the Golf Channel.
