YOUNG HOPEFULS SHOWCASE THEIR TALENT AT THE MUTUAL OF OMAHA DRIVE, CHIP & PUTT JUNIOR CHALLENGE IN INDIANAPOLIS

The Mutual of Omaha Drive, Chip & Putt Junior Challenge was held at The Brickyard Crossing Golf Course in Indianapolis, Indiana, on Tuesday, July 26, 2005, where participants ages 7-14 learned about the game of golf and tested their skills.‑Eighteen different prizes were awarded in each age group – one to each of the top five in driving, chipping and putting, as well as, the top three rankings for the best combined performance.

“We witnessed some outstanding performances from these young golfers, but at the end of the day I think everyone who participated was a winner,” said Mutual of Omaha General Manager John Mazzini.

Best Combined Performance (each qualifies for the Windy City Regional Championship and the chance to advance to the 2005 National Championships this October).
