Missouri golfer Yuen finishes 72nd at Augusta Women's Amateur

Missouri golfer Yuen finishes 72nd at Augusta Women's Amateur”

Kupcho, the world's top-ranked amateur, shot a one-under par 71 at Champions Retreat Golf Club in Evans, Georgia, leaving her at five under on the week going into the final round on Saturday at Augusta National Golf Club ahead of next week's Masters.

The 72-player field was cut to 30 players for the final round, and Kwon flubbed two chips for double bogey on the 16th hole to seemingly lose her chance. She opened play on No. 10 and posted a two on the par-3 11th hole. After a bogey on the first hole, she made birdies at Nos. Her 4-under 140 is one shot back of the leader and Fassi is one of just four players who were under par in both rounds.

After pars at 17, Kupcho would close out the historic round in style by rolling in a long range birdie putt at the last to seal a comfortable victory.

The LPGA legends enjoyed the same honorary starter moment in a similar fashion to how Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and the late Arnold Palmer have at the Masters.

Ariana Grande Addresses Talks About Her Sexuality
Whether or not the singer did reveal her sexuality, we shouldn't have to label individuals and just continue supporting them. After fans started to discuss the topic on Twitter, Grande said she didn't feel the need to label herself.

Augusta National has previously barred women from playing at the home of the Masters until 2012.

Fassi, who started one shot behind, took her first lead with a pitch over the mounds to 2 feet for birdie on the par-5 eighth. She hit the green in two and rolled in a short eagle putt.

The world's top-ranked amateur, Kupcho's decision to go with a local caddie was an easy one, although the American laughed she had not yet broken the news to her father Michael.

"My dad, he is my coach, he started coaching me when I was eight years old so this is special for me", said Perez.

One killed, three injured in Seattle bus shooting
She said both were conscious but didn't immediately know their condition. "The entire city of Seattle is pulling for them". Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said two victims, a man and woman, were brought to the hospital.

"He's willing to do anything that makes me happy and is best for me so he kind of came to me on the second hole and said I don't know maybe you should take the caddie".

Tied again, she delivered the victor with a 7-iron on the par-3 16th that caught the ridge and fed down to the hole.

The seesaw battle escalated with Fassi making a birdie at 14 and Kupcho doing the same at 15.

Kupcho led by two strokes as they teed off on 18.
