Four Nebraskans Set to Compete at DCP Finals

Amen, Kim, Midyett and Vilai Headed to Augusta National

OMAHA (April 1, 2024) - A record four Nebraskans are set to compete in the 2024 Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia on April 7.

Anna Midyett of Bennington, Naryn Kim of Lincoln, Henry Amen of Imperial and Patrick Vilai of Grand Island will all represent Nebraska on a very special stage. They will all compete Sunday, on the eve of the 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National. The Finals will also be televised live on the Golf Channel Sunday morning.

Conducted in partnership with the USGA, the Masters Tournament and the PGA of America, Drive, Chip and Putt is a free, nationwide youth golf development program open to boys and girls, ages 7-15, in four age divisions. The three-pronged competition tests the skills essential to playing the game – accuracy in driving, chipping and putting.

Midyett (Girls 10-11) is one of seven returning finalists, after she finished tied for third in the Girls 7-9 Division last year. Amen (Boys 7-9), Vilai (Boys 12-13), and Kim (Girls 12-13) are all making a first appearance. Kim already has a state title under her belt, being the youngest Nebraska Girls' Match Play Champion ever with her win last year. Read about how they got here at


At the 10th annual National Finals, one champion will be named from each age/gender division. Each National Finalist will be scored based on a 30-point system, offering the player with the best drive 10 points, the player with the closest cumulative chips 10 points and the player with the nearest cumulative putts 10 points, in each separate skill. The highest total composite score will determine the winner.
