In April 2013 Nyah's Grandparents saw the advertisements for the newly created Drive, Chip and Putt Championship that was going to premiere ahead of the 2014 Masters and convinced her parents to register her. In that initial year it was a lottery and Nyah was one of the 17,000 lucky kids to be selected for a qualifier.
All of the qualifiers were 10 hours away. With a road trip inevitable, the decision was made to head to Bethpage State Park on Long Island in New York. To everyone's delight, Nyah won the qualifier and moved on to the second, and final qualifying stage, at Eisenhower Park. It was also 10 hours away from home and one month later. Nyah was the final competitor and when the scores were tallied, it was revealed that she would be headed to Augusta National the following April. It was a dream come true for the entire family.
In Canada, not a lot of people had even heard of Drive, Chip and Putt - even those in the golf world, as it was still so new.
