Hammond Freshman To Compete At Augusta National

Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Not every high school freshman can take their clubs into Augusta National Golf Club, but Columbia's Henry Augenstein will do just that this weekend.

The Hammond student won a pair of qualifiers for a national tournament and now he will be one of 88 junior golfers competing in the "Drive, Chip and Putt Championship National Finals" which will be held at the site of the Masters.

The skills challenge takes the golfers to the practice area at the Augusta National Golf Club where they compete in the drive and chip portion of the challenge.

The putting competition will take place at the 18th green, which means Henry will take his clubs and walk on an area that has been ground zero for some of the most dramatic performances in the history of golf.
