The Drive/Chip/Putt will follow the national rules for this competition type. See below for a full description:
- Each participant will compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip and Putt). An individual rules sheet for each skill competition is available on the championship website.
- Participants will accumulate points in each skill. The participant with the highest number of accumulated points will be declared the overall champion of his or her age category.
- At local and subregional qualifying, in the case of a tie in the overall score, the putting rank will serve as the tie breaker (followed by 1) chipping and 2) driving if necessary).
- At regional qualifying, in the case of a tie in the overall score, a playoff shall commence to determine the player advancing to the National Finals. This playoff shall include a single stroke at each of the skills (Drive, Chip and Putt).
- Use of a putter is not allowed for competition in the chip skill. Competitors may only use a lofted iron or wood club for this skill. A “chipper” club is considered an approved club for the chip skill.
- The Drive, Chip and Putt Executive Committee, its agents and subordinate organizers, reserve the right to modify competition setup at any time. As in golf, participants are expected to have the ability to adjust to playing conditions as necessary.
- For example, the driving grid may contain slopes, doglegs, areas of rough, bunkers or immovable obstructions. The chip skill may be played from grass cut to fairway or rough height and from a distance other than 10-15 yards. The putting skill may be setup to include putts that are straight, uphill, downhill or that break in either direction.
