Kupcho heads to Augusta National with 1-shot lead

Posted April 07, 2019

Her time at this first-ever tournament came to an end after the second round, as only the top 30 golfers advanced to the third and final stage.

"I said, 'Let's chip this in, '" said Dave Thorpe, an Augusta National caddie working for Kwon this week.

She learned in the practice round on the 13th fairway that even with the ball above her feet on the severely sloped fairway, the shot tends to go straight. "I don't know if she understood me or not, but she did it". "It also got me in some trouble, but I think at Augusta National, it's going to be really beneficial just to help me hit those high shots that land soft to those greens".

LPGA legends Pak Se-ri, Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa and Nancy Lopez hit ceremonial first tee shots to launch the historic round, although it was American Anna Redding who hit the first competitive shot at Augusta National.
