A New England Trio
Three NEPGA Junior Tour Players Headed to Augusta National for the DCP National Final
For all in golf, the first week in April signifies many exciting events. The first time many get back on the golf course after a long winter, the start of spring, and Masters Week. For the past four years the week of one of golf’s most prestigious event has begun with the Drive, Chip, and Putt National Final. This year three kids from the New England PGA’s Junior Tour will compete in the nationally broadcast event.
Zachary Colon (Boys 12-13, Bolton, Mass.), Gabrielle Shieh (Girls 14-15, Carlisle, Mass.), and Brian Glennon (Boys 14-15, Hingham, Mass.) are the trio from New England. To get to the National Final, all contestants had passed through one local, one sub-regional and one regional qualifier.
The regional final was held at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass. this past September. In an event that brought together the highest point winners from each of the sub-regional events throughout the Northeast, margins for error were razor thin, often decided by points in one skill.
