Round One of ANWA Concludes with four players under par
The first round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur wrapped up Thursday morning at Champions Retreat Golf Club, outside of Augusta, Georgia.
Overnight leader Kate Smith, who was 4 under par through 12 holes when play was suspended Wednesday because of inclement weather, bogeyed Nos. 13 and 14, then double-bogeyed the par-4 16th for an even-par 72.
That put the Nebraska senior two shots off the 18-hole lead, held by Arizona State sophomore Linn Grant and Houston sophomore Karen Fredgaard.
Four players in the 82-person field broke par in the opening round. Reigning U.S. Women’s Amateur champion Rose Zhang shot 71, as did South Carolina’s Ana Peláez Triviño. Read more here
