Be in the know: Augusta National Women's Amateur. - Golftini
Mary, Queen of Scots, ruled Scotland from 1542 to 1567 and is noted by some as the first female to play golf. During her reign, the famous St Andrews Links golf course was built. Mary is credited with creating the term “caddie!"
The first women-only golf tournament on record took place January 9th, 1811 in Scotland for local fisherman’s wives. The prize for the winner was a creel and a shawl, with the runner up receiving two handkerchiefs from Barcelona.
An international field of 72 women amateurs will compete over 54 holes of stroke play. A cut will take place after 36 holes, advancing the leading 30 players to the final round at Augusta National Golf Club on April 6th. Tune in to NBC from Noon-3pm EST to watch live coverage of the ANWA event!
