First step to Augusta

Competing in the 14-15 age group, Jefferson City's Alex Gentry uncorks a drive during Saturday's Drive, Chip and Putt competition at Turkey Creek. This was the first step in the journey for these young golf hopefuls, ages 7-15, with two more qualifying rounds to go to advance to the Drive, Chip and Putt National Championships at prestigious Augusta National on the Sunday before next year's Masters. There were 85 competitors at Turkey Creek, and Gentry was one of the qualifiers who will advance to the Sub-Regional on Aug. 19 in Eureka.
