Golf skill runs in the Maralack family of Snoqualmie.

Like her dad, David, and big sister, Caitlyn, 9-year-old Kasey Maralack is doing very well in the game. She won the Pacific Northwest Regional Drive Chip and Putt Championship August 11 at the Golf Club at Hawks Prairie in Lacey, Wash. She’ll go on to the national championship at Augusta National in 2014.

Kasey scored 35 points in chipping, best in the group, but really excelled in her putting, related David. She started off slowly on the first short putt with five points, but holed the longer second and third putts, winning the chip, putt and overall medals. Now, she’ll work on her driving for the national championship.

The championship is a new junior golf development initiative created by the Masters Tournament Foundation, the United States Golf Association (USGA) and the PGA of America.

A total of 88 boys and girls ages 7-15 (11 in each age bracket), will square off at Augusta National on the Sunday prior to the 2014 Masters Tournament.

Kasey’s older sister Caitlyn is a Mount Si sophomore and girls’ golf team leader.
