2024 Augusta National Women’s Amateur format, cut rules and day-by-day games

The 12th hole at Augusta National

The 2024 Augusta National Women's Amateur format has been announced for the fourth year of the event in which the best women's amateur golfers in the world will have a chance to compete at Augusta National Golf Club.

Augusta National Women's Amateur format

The Augusta National Women's Amateur is a 54-hole stroke-play tournament featuring 72 invited women's amateur players (no professionals).

The tournament is played over the first two days at Champions Retreat in Evans, Ga., less than a half-hour from Augusta National Golf Club. All 72 players, grouped in threesomes, will play out both rounds.

After two rounds, scheduled to be played Wednesday and Thursday, the Augusta National Women's Amateur field will be cut to the low 30 players and ties.

There will then be a practice round on Friday for all 72 players at Augusta National Golf Club. No tournament golf is played that day.

For the third and final round on Saturday, the top 30 players will compete at Augusta National Golf Club to determine the winner. The women will play Augusta National Golf Club from tee markers closely resembling the member tees for the club, rather than the same tees used in the Masters Tournament. The golf course plays closer to 6,500 yards in length but still plays to a par of 72.

Again, with these being amateur players, there is no Augusta National Women's Amateur purse and no players will be paid for their appearance in prize money. Augusta National will award a new trophy to the champion, who will then receive a five-year exemption into the event in the future.
