The national finals will be held on Sunday morning and broadcast on Golf Channel. 

Hegstrom got to Augusta National by completing the local qualifier at Button Hole last June, getting through the sub-regional qualifier at Lebaron Hills in Massachusetts and then knocking out the regional qualifier at TPC Boston.
