ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Young golfers converged on the Anchorage Golf Course on Monday to compete in the Drive, Chip and Putt qualifier event.

The top three finishers in each division advance to Meriwether National in Oregon, which is the next stage of the competition held in August. Not only did the top placers get the reward of moving on, but they also got to meet Miss Alaska who was there to help hand out awards.
