Powers performs well in Drive, Chip & Putt golf competitions
REGIONAL -- Kylie Powers of Irwin competed well in two rounds of qualifiers for the Drive, Chip & Putt Championships during the past month at Omaha and Fort Dodge.
Powers, the daughter of Tom and Sherry Powers and an incoming freshman at IKM-Manning High School this fall, placed third overall in the Girls 14-15 year-old division in a local qualifier held June 30 at Oak Hills Country Club in Omaha. She scored 78 points overall to secure the bronze medal and earned a silver medal in the putting competition.
Powers then advanced to the sub-regional qualifier held July 27 at Lakeside Municipal Golf Course in Fort Dodge, where she placed fourth overall in her division with 106 points to earn alternate status for the next round. Powers earned a gold medal in the putting competition.
The Drive, Chip & Putt Championships is a free nationwide junior skills competition open to boys and girls ages 7-15. Four rounds of qualifying events are held as golfers compete for a chance to go to the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia next April and compete in the finals.
Kylie Powers will join the IKM-Manning golf team next spring and compete alongside her older sister Emily, who helped the Wolves advance to the state tournament earlier this year.
