Chevron Championship 2022: Final Round – Live! | sport
Congratulations to 16-year-old left-hander Anna Davis, who won the third edition of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur yesterday with a stunning 69 finish. It’s a name worth noting, as it just might reappear on the radar sooner than you think. You see, it’s only been three years since Jennifer Kupcho won the first ANWA, and now take a look at the 54-hole rankings at Dinah Shore…
-16: Jennifer Kupcho -10: Patty Tavatanakit -9: Jessica Korda -7: Annie Park -6: Nanna Koerstz Madsen, HJ Kim, Lexi Thompson, Gabi Ruffels, Hannah Green, Brooke Henderson
There’s a good chance Kupcho, six shots ahead of defending champion Patty Tavatanakit, will win her first major at Mission Hills today. But crazy things can happen in golf. Players are getting tight, like poor Lexi Thompson did in last year’s US Open at the Olympic Club, with a five-stroke lead over the back nine. The players are warming up too, just like Lydia Ko on the last day here 12 months ago, the New Zealander shot a record 62 which gave Tavatanakit – who went into the final round with a five shot advantage – a real scare. Everything is possible on Sunday in a major.
Whoever wins will take a celebratory jump into Poppie’s Pond, a long tradition at Dinah Shore, but which will be played for the last time today. Indeed, the tournament, formerly sponsored by Colgate, Nabisco, Kraft Nabisco and All Nippon Airways, is now financed by Chevron, which will take it to Texas next year. Well, as the founder herself loved to sing: the pleasure is there. This blog starts at 10pm BST, after everyone is out in Mission Hills for the very last time. It’s on!
