On Saturday, the 17-year-old Japanese Tsubasa Kajitani won the prestigious Augusta National Amateur Championship.
When she was two shots behind in the early morning of the final round, she took advantage of the lead group’s defeat. Together with Migliaccio, she rose to the top of the list with a cumulative record of +1.
By entering his name in the Augusta National History Book, the 2019 Japanese junior high school champion succeeded the American Jennifer Kupcho (Jennifer Kupcho).
Despite the disturbing twin bugs on the 17th pennant, Kajitani defeated one of the favorites of this tournament, the American Rose Rose, with 73, 72 and 72 results. She worked together to become the first athlete in Japan and Asia to win at Augusta.
She can now say that she is watching Tiger Woods achieve one of the biggest comebacks in the sport in 2019 to be crowned champion.
She said: “That’s my impression of Augusta Citizens.” To be honest, when I came to the United States, my goal was not victory. I gradually built up my confidence and I am here. This will help my world rankings. “
“This is the realization of the dream of winning a major tournament,” said the 23rd amateur in the world.
If she resists the young Kagitani, Migliaccio will bring back the second Augusta National Trophy in the Deacon’s locker room at Wake Forest University. Kupcho wears his own color in 2019.
However, in addition to the pain of failure, the 21-year-old athlete ranked 15th in the world amateur rankings. He said that his mother was enjoying a special moment with his luggage and his bag.
“This is a special and unique moment. I will remember my whole life. My mother introduced me to golf when she was six years old. What we experienced today is truly amazing. [samedi] And this week” means a person who has not resisted an axe in 2019.
In a smooth round, Zhang, the leader of the amateur world rankings, fell to par 5 of the 13th pennant. The 17-year-old golfer hit the ball into the famous tributary of Rae’s Creek, then left the green, leaving behind a terrible three-wheeled carriage.
“It’s a difficult situation, but I want to stay there for the time being,” Zhang said, without any frustration since he was 17 years old. I am still in the game and there are five holes to play. anything could happen. I learned a few things. I could have played better. I will point out the main points. When you are an amateur, you should not be too harsh on yourself. I have no expectations of the result. You must be yourself. Overall, I am satisfied. “
