Amateur women opt for caddies over daddies at Augusta

Paul McGinley

"This has huge potential to not just inspire young girls but golfers, other women in sports and women in business".

Olarra, who works as an auditor in Madrid, grabbed the final spot on the second playoff hole - the par-3 17th - where she rolled in a birdie putt from 25 feet.

Girls have always been able to take part in the Masters' traditional Drive, Chip and Putt contest held on the Sunday before the Major, but this will be the first time a women's tournament will be held on the course itself. Sorenstam and her daughter walked with the final group.

Sadom, playing in his first Asian Tour start this season, overcame a spirited challenge from India's Ajeetesh Sandhu to finish the final round with a one-under 70, to card an overall score of 19-under 265 at the Kurmitola Golf Club in Dhaka. Both sent a message of their own long before the tournament by earning LPGA Tour cards previous year and deferring until after they finished college. On Thursday, she eagled the toughest hole on the golf course - the par-5 14th where she chipped in from 40 yards - and made an additional five birdies, but also mixed in five bogeys. Kupcho had reason to believe she was in trouble when a migraine surfaced, causing vision so blurry she couldn't see the line she marks on her ball while putting. She hit the green in two and rolled in a short eagle putt.

"Hopefully, I can go out and figure out what was going on with my swing".

But Kupcho, who made bogey at No. 10, drew even at the par-5 13th. She's 1 shot back of the lead.

It means she is six shots adrift of the world's leading amateur Jennifer Kupcho going into the final day - the tournament is over 54 holes as opposed to the standard 72 - with the American at five-under par and holding a one-stroke lead over Mexico's Maria Fassi. Instead, it came out with a sharp draw, with enough distance to roll by the pin just over the back, setting up a birdie.

"They know how special it is", Ochoa said. She birdied No. 12, No. 16 and No. 18.

After American Anna Redding struck the first competitive shot the focus shifted to Kupcho and Fassi, the two close friends and college rivals sharing an emotional hug before teeing off.

"It's unbelievable what we were able to have out here today", Fassi said.
