Anna Davis, the third winner of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, has roots in Washington State’s junior golf scene.

The 16-year-old star picked up a one-stroke victory over her LSU teammates Latanna Stone and Ingrid Lindblad on Saturday to follow in the footsteps of Jennifer Kupcho and Tsubasa Kajitani as winners at Augusta National Golf Club.

I don’t think it’s been treated yet that I won here, but it’s kind of surreal, to be honest,” Davis said, via The Associated Press’ Doug Ferguson. “I can’t even imagine what just happened. Everything happened so fast.”

While Davis attends school in the San Diego suburb of Spring Valley, her family spends their summers in Chewelah, Washington, located an hour north of Spokane. Davis won three consecutive District 5 Washington Junior Golf Association titles for his age group and won the 2020 WJGA State Championship for the 14-15 age group. Of 13 total WJGA events contested from 2018 to 2020, Davis has won 11 with a second-place finish at the 2019 State Championship and a fourth-place finish at the 2018 State Championship.

Davis, a sophomore in high school, stood out in the world of junior golf. She won the PING Heather Farr Classic last April and followed it up with a win at the Junior Women’s PGA Championship. Both titles earned him places in the Junior Solheim Cup and Junior Ryder Cup teams.

Davis led the event after day one at Champions Retreat Golf Club after shooting a 2-under 70. A par 76 four on day two dropped his two shots behind the heads of Stone and Beatrice Wallin of the state of Florida.

Davis shot a par 69 from 3 under at Augusta National Golf Club on Saturday to finish as the only under par player for the event at 1 under. Stone had a two-stroke lead with two to play before a double bogey on the 17th brought it level with Davis.

Stone bogeyed the par-4 18th and Davis was left all alone atop the standings to claim the title.

Victory at Augusta National gives Davis a bye to this summer’s US Women’s Open at Pine Needles, US Women’s Open at Muirfield, US Women’s Amateur at Chambers Bay, any USGA, R&A and PGA of America amateur events to which she is eligible over the next year, and the next five Augusta Women’s National Amateurs, provided she remains an amateur.
