Seventy-one of the world’s top women amateurs have accepted invitations

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Invitations to the 2022 Augusta National Women’s Amateur were sent in the month of January and 71 players to date have been confirmed for the championship, which will take place March 30-April 2 in Augusta, Ga.

As of February 2, 39 of the top-40 amateurs in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking have

Beginning this week prior to the 86th Masters Tournament, the international field will compete across 54 holes of stroke play, with a cut to 30 players taking place after 36 holes. The first two rounds will take place on the Island and Bluff nines at Champions Retreat Golf Club on Wednesday, March 30 and Thursday, March 31. The entire field will then play Augusta National for an official practice round on Friday, April 1.

championship in 2019 before the 2020 edition was canceled due to the effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, Tsubasa Kajitani captured the first title for Japan at Augusta National, eight days prior to Hideki Matsuyama’s breakthrough win at the Masters Tournament.
