Sawyer advanced to the tournament by winning a local qualifier, a sub-regional, and a regional qualifying tournament. Her father Chase Brockstedt said this is a once in a lifetime experience for his daughter.
"I mean the drive, chip, and putt has been a goal of hers for a couple of years and it has been great for her to come up with a game plan and to practice and achieve her goals," said Chase Brockstedt.
Sawyer said she really wants to win her age bracket. The Drive, Chip, and Putt Championship at Augusta will be televised on NBC's Golf Channel. She will be competing at about 9:45 until 11 a.m.
