After an incredibly successful inaugural year of Drive, Chip and Putt Championship, the Masters Tournament, United States Golf Association (USGA) and the PGA of America have announced its expansion into all 50 states. Approximately 17,000 youngsters had opportunities to qualify in the first year, which began with local qualifying at courses throughout the country and continued with regional qualifying.
