Brinker, McMyler Conclude Run at Augusta National Women’s Amateur

AUGUSTA, Ga. The Duke women’s golf tandem of Phoebe Brinker and Emma McMyler had their run at the Augusta National Women’s Amateur (ANWA) come to an end on Thursday as both Blue Devils missed the cut, following 36 holes of qualifying at Champions Retreat Golf Club in Augusta, Ga.
Brinker, who was competing in her third ANWA event, posted rounds of 79 and 75, while McMyler was seeing action in her first ANWA and totaled scores of 75 and 79.  Both finished in a tie for 65th with a 10-over, 154. 
McMyler, a native of San Antonio, Texas, struggled to get her putter working all week and was limited to only one birdie in each round.  A product of Wilmington, Del., Brinker netted four total birdies, all of which came on the front nine. 
Brinker had one of the highlights of the second round as she nearly hit a hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth hole as she hit her approach just past the pin and spun back to within inches.  She played her final 10 holes at 1-under-par to close the event.
Both McMyler and Brinker will play a practice round on Friday at Augusta National Golf Club in the morning, before having a chance to play the par three course in the afternoon.  It will be a day to remember.
Duke now owns 15 golfers that have competed in the ANWA since the event began in 2019. 
Lottie Woad currently leads the ANWA with a 5-under, 139.  After 28 under-par rounds on Wednesday, the conditions were very challenging Thursday with high winds gusting all day.  Only five golfers shot under par in the second round.
