Play was suspended due to inclement weather (rain) Wednesday afternoon with 29 golfers yet to finish at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur. DU’s Anna Zanusso finished her first round at 75 (+3) which ties her with thirteen other golfers at T32 place. The top 30 golfers who survive the two-day cut play in the finals of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur championship. She achieved par on ten holes and had two birdies and five bogies during her round on the Champions Course. Katherine Smith stands alone at -4 thru 11 holes. Two players completed the full 18 holes with a best -1 under par.
Zanusso will need to separate herself from the pack Thursday to make the thirty-player cut. That would be an incredible accomplishment against the best amateurs in the world.
The tournament is played over the first two days at Champions Retreat in Evans, Ga., less than a half-hour from Augusta National Golf Club. All 82 players, grouped in threesomes, play out both rounds. After two rounds played Wednesday and Thursday, the Augusta National Women’s Amateur field will be cut to the low 30 players, with a sudden-death playoff to decide that exact number. There will then be a practice round on Friday for all players at Augusta National Golf Club, so, either way, Zanusso will get to try her skill on the historic Augusta National Golf Course.
It was partly cloudy and 82 degrees in Augusta, Georgia. Rain began to fall during the afternoon with cooling temperatures and dry weather predicted for the remainder of the week.
Should play continue today, we will update the article.
