Kasey Maralack of Snoqualmie has qualified to play in the Drive Chip and Putt national championship at Augusta National next year, for the second time. The 13-year-old won the Girls 12-13 Division at the Regional Drive Chip and Putt Championship at The Olympic Club in San Francisco on Sept. 9.

In 2014, she was a national finalist at the inaugural Drive Chip and Putt event, winning the Drive competition at age 9.

Kasey is an eighth grader at Chief Kanim Middle School. She placed sixth in the Washington Junior Golf Association State Championship this year scoring 79-76-78. Her coach is Bryan Stevens, Director of Instruction at The Club at Snoqualmie Ridge.

Local qualifying for the fifth season began in May, June and July, held at more than 260 sites throughout the U.S. The top-three scorers per venue, in each of four age categories, boys and girls divisions, advanced to 50 subregional qualifiers in July and August. Two juniors in each age and gender division then competed at the regional level in September and October.

The top finisher from each regional site’s age and gender divisions, a total of 80 finalists, earned a place in the national finals, which will be broadcast live on the Golf Channel.
