It’s the final round of the fourth edition of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur (ANWA) where Rose Zhang holds the lead

Today the golfing world’s eyes will be on Augusta National Golf Club as the final round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur takes place.

After two rounds at Champions Retreat, 72 players have been cut to 31 and they are set to take on Augusta National just days before the best men in the world kick-start their Major campaign.

Before a ball has even been hit, most believe that the day will belong to the world number one amateur Rose Zhang. On Thursday she extended her lead to five shots. Thirteen-under-par after 36 holes set a new record smashing Jennifer Kupcho’s five-under-par of 2019.

Not content with setting the 18 hole score record on Wednesday with a 66, the Stanford Sophomore went on to shoot a seven-under-par 65 on Thursday at Champions Retreat.

On Thursday the 19-year-old said:

“I'm just super blessed to be in this kind of position. I know that it's very rare, and I believe that it's just something that to keep in mind that no matter what happens, I'm always super proud of everything that I've accomplished thus far. The job's not done yet. We still have to go out there and play a good round on Saturday.”

This won’t be the first time that the American has tackled Augusta National, she has made the final round in all four editions of the ANWA.

“I'm just going to try my best to bring out the best that I can do when I'm going out there and playing at Augusta, and I think that every hole, every score matters. With that, I'm just going to play as hard as I can and try the best that I can."

We have all watched many rounds at Augusta National, so know that there is potential for a lot of drama over the final 18 holes. Zhang will need to keep her composure to win what may now be considered as one of the most prized titles in women’s amateur golf.

Sweden’s Andrea Lignell still sits in second on eight-under-par after a second round three-under-par 69.

Georgia native Jenny Bae is in third place at seven-under-par after a second round 68.

Thirty-one players made the cut, which fell at two-over-par 146. All participants played a practice round at Augusta National on Friday and finished the day with a surprise concert from Niall Horan.

There is a two-tee start for the final round of the ANWA with tee times starting at 12:40pm GMT. The leaders tee off at 1:50pm GMT. Watch live coverage on NBC and Sky Sports Golf.
