Nathan Drogin ’22 has been playing golf since he could walk and this spring, he’ll get to walk one of golf’s most coveted courses in, playing a truncated version of the Masters Course at Augusta National in Georgia.
Nathan qualified for the National Finals of the Drive, Pitch and Putt, which is played at Augusta National Golf the Sunday before the Masters Tournament on April 7, 2019. To qualify, golfers had to make it through three stages. Rather than playing a full round of golf, courses were shrunk to make it more like pitch and putt or a par 3 golf course.
While Nathan had tried in years past, he had never made it through to the finals. “This was my first year making it past the second stage and then I actually won the third stage, so that was pretty cool,” Nathan said. Now, he will be one of 10 boys in the oldest age group, 14-15, in the Nationals at Augusta, which will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel.
