The Utah PGA hosted the Drive Chip & Putt Sub-Regional today at Glenmoor Golf Club.
Each of today’s participants qualified earlier this season at one of four local qualifiers, placing in the top 3 of their respective age groups. Today’s top two qualifiers in each age group will move onto the Regional Qualifying at Chambers Bay this September with hopes of qualifying to the National championship held next April at Augusta National Golf Club.

Girls 12-13 division winner Saylor Wagner claimed the division title with her 127 point performance leading all girl participants thanks to a division high in chipping and putting. Marissa Johnson followed, scoring 114 on a 44-25-45 split, claiming her qualifying bid.
Blake Brown and Mack Herzog moved on out of the Boys 14-15 division along with Tazlyn Wagner and Navy Hubbs of the Girls 14-15 division.
Boys 10-11 division and Boys 7-9 division leaders Emery Johnson, Dallin Pratt, Graham Benson, and Beckam Andrus will all appear at Chambers Bay this September.
The final participants making the push towards Augusta from Utah came from the Girls 10-11 division and Girls 7-9 division.
