Participants for Friday’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur are now confirmed.

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur is set to offer its competitors a special treat this year, as they will have the opportunity to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course after completing their practice round. This marks the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have been able to play the short course.

Anna Davis, 18, is one of the participants and is entering her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur, fresh off her best finish of her young college career. Last year, Davis, along with Megha Ganne and Amari Avery, took part in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video that was posted on the championship’s website and social channels.

“I think that’ll be really fun,” said Auburn’s Megan Schofill, who won last year’s U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship. “It’s just great for everyone to keep seeing different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to doing that.”

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on Wednesday of Masters week since 1960 and underwent a thorough renovation before last year’s tournament. Hole Nos. 1-5 were rerouted and several trees were removed to improve patron walkways and viewing areas. This opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of Augusta National Golf Club.

Overall, this addition to the Augusta National Women’s Amateur tournament promises to be an exciting new experience for all participants and fans alike.
