Broken Arrow’s Evelyn Dutcher recently celebrated several achievements in her Drive, Chip & Putt competitions in Oklahoma and Texas.
Her mother, Jordan Dutcher, says Evelyn competed in Drive, Chip &Putt in the 7-9 age division at Meadowbrook Country Club in Tulsa on June 9.
It was the first qualifier started with a pool of around 400 girls from multiple states in her division with the top two advancing from each qualifier. This makes up a pool of roughly 100 girls that compete at subregional.
Evelyn advanced in the qualifier and placed first at her subregional, held July 16 at Tulsa’s LaFortune Park Golf Course.
On Sept. 17 she competed in the finals at Champions Houston against the top 14 girls in the region. She was 1 of 2 players representing Oklahoma.
“Evelyn placed 12th at finals and we are just so proud of her,” Jordan says.
All Drive Chip & Putt events are sponsored by the PGA and the Masters tournament. The winner of regionals gets to compete at Augusta during the Masters.
Drive, Chip & Putt is a free nationwide junior golf development competition aimed at growing the game by focusing on the three fundamental skills employed in golf.
