National Women's Amateur Championship coming to Augusta next spring

National Women's Amateur Championship coming to Augusta next spring

Unbelievably, it was not even Ghim's first eagle of the day.

The ripple effects could be considerable and multifaceted.Young girls around the world taking up golf can now aspire to a heretofore unfathomable ambition: winning a national women's championship at the celebrated home of the Masters.

It was 15 years ago that Martha Burk, head of the National Council of Women's Organizations at the time, led a protest against the club for its refusal to admit female members.

"...we believe this event will have a significant and lasting impact on the future of the women's game", said Fred Ridley, chairman of the Augusta National Golf Club and The Masters.

The first 36 holes of the 54-hole championship will be played at the nearby Champions Retreat Golf Club.

His rounds of 72-74 took him to two over par, and the 1992 champion has now made the cut in 30 of his 33 starts at Augusta.

Ravens Sign Robert Griffin III to a 1-Year Deal
Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh is optimistic about the signing; saying the deal was a bargain and that it improved the team. But Griffin suffered a knee injury at the end of that season, and it eventually led to his benching in Washington.

Ridley, who became the club's chairman last October, did not disclose details about how many fans would be allowed to attend the new event, but it will undoubtedly be a hot ticket and bring more attention to the women's game.What is known is that the tournament will have an global field of 72 elite players.

"Our hope and expectation is that this event will further energize those who already love the sport and inspire others through the dream of competing at Augusta National". I just felt it was time to do that.

There were initially scheduling concerns when the tournament was announced, with the first women's major of the year, the ANA Inspiration, finishing on the same weekend as the new event.

"It's never going to affect my golf, so I'm fine. It's fabulous. I can't wait to see how the women handle one of the greatest golf courses in the world".

Several notable players need a good round Friday to ensure they stick around for the weekend at the Masters. Unless you stand on the 12th and 11th and you get a big wind switch, that's when obviously it's going to get tricky.
