Invitations were sent to 72 players earlier this month, according to a news release from Augusta National Golf Club.

“It is with great excitement that we have begun the process of assembling the field for the 2020 Augusta National Women’s Amateur,” said Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament. “An invitation to this championship represents another impressive achievement for the top players in the women’s amateur game. We look forward to welcoming the field to Augusta in April and remain steadfast in our belief that this event – highlighted by these talented players – will impact and grow interest in the sport in a meaningful way.”

Invitations were sent to winners of major women’s amateur golf tournaments and top players based on the World Amateur Golf Ranking at the end of the 2019 calendar year. The field’s remaining spots will be filled by special invitation from the ANWA Championship Committee.

On Wednesday, April 1 and Thursday, April 2, the field will play 36 holes on the Island and Bluff nines at Champions Retreat Golf Club, after which a cut to 30 players will take place.

The entire field will play an official practice round at Augusta National on Friday, April 3. The final round will take place Saturday, April 4 with the players who made the cut playing 18 holes at Augusta National.

Jennifer Kupcho, who now competes on the LPGA Tour, won the inaugural championship in 2019.
