The San Diego Union-Tribune's Tod Leonard profiles San Diego's four Drive, Chip & Putt contestants who all made it to Augusta National after practicing together late into the night prior to the final qualifying.
Included in his story are brothers who made it, Colin and Shane Ffrench.
Highly competitive, Colin, 15, and Shane, 12, battle it out regularly, often separated by only a few shots. The day of the regional final, their parents were very nervous about one making it if the other did not.
“That would have kind of sucked,” Shane, an eight-grader at Carmel Valley Middle School, said. “I know we both worked really hard to get into this.”
Added Colin, “I couldn’t have imagined doing it without him.”
The Ffrench's also got the full Golf Channel treatment. The "DCP" starts Sunday at 8 am ET.
