Taighan Chea of Bothell will be among 80 junior golfers representing 30 U.S. states and one Canadian province to compete in the fifth annual Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals on April 1 at Augusta National Golf Club. The event will take place five days prior to the Masters Tournament.

Chea, whose home course is the Inglewood Golf Club, will compete in the male age 7-9 group.

At the national finals, one champion will be named from each age/gender division. Each finalist will be scored based on a 30-point system, offering the player with the longest drive 10 points, the player with the closest cumulative chips 10 points and the player with the nearest cumulative putts 10 points, in each separate skill. The highest total composite score will determine the winner.

Tune into the live broadcast beginning at 8 a.m. EDT on Golf Channel and DriveChipandPutt.com.
