The Augusta National Women’s Amateur got underway Wednesday morning at Champions Retreat Golf Club, and the top-ranked amateur in the world wasted no time in getting to the top of the leaderboard.
Rose Zhang, who enters this tournament No. 1 in the Women’s WAGR rankings for the third consecutive year, opened with a 6-under 66, which is the lowest round ever recorded in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.
“I think that from the start of the round, I really just wanted to kind of make pars because at Champions Retreat, you never know what you're going to get,” Zhang said. “With the round being so soft and being muddy, I can't really expect anything more out of my game today.”
Zhang did “make pars” – twelve of them – but she added six birdies, including one at each of the four par 5s.
