The Augusta National Women’s Amateur ended in dramatic fashion as 16-year-old Anna Davis shot 70-76-69 to become the youngest champion in event history.

Davis, a sophomore in high school, overcame a two-stroke deficit with her final round of three-under par 69 at Augusta National.

Over 54 holes, Davis finished with a 215-under par, topping the field by one shot. Davis, who is ranked 100th in the world amateur golf rankings, birdied four times in his last round, including three birdies on the first five holes of the back nine.

“I’m still a little shocked,” Davis said. “I don’t think it’s been processed yet that I’ve won here. It’s quite surreal, to be honest. I’m speechless.”

She deliberately weaved her way around Augusta National Golf Club while tying the second-lowest score of the day.

On the biggest stage she has performed on, Davis held a share of the first-round lead at Champions Retreat. The stakes continued to rise as she took on the challenge of Augusta National Golf Club. She birdied on the second and ninth and walked in a four-footer on the 12 after she landed her 8-inch iron from the hole. Davis added another at 13, to take a chunk of the lead.

“I think playing in a tournament like this and playing junior golf from a very young age, my main goal was always to be the best in the world,” Davis said.

Co-leaders Beatrice Wallin and Latanna Stone faltered on their final laps, opening the door for Davis to lock in victory from behind.

Stone started her day tied atop par and led by two strokes with two to play after a birdie at 16, but a double bogey at 17 and a bogey at 18 dropped her behind Davis.

“It’s just heartbreaking,” said Stone, who was making her Augusta National Women’s Amateur debut. “I knew where I was on the 17th and I was just thinking normal.

“I was trying to be aggressive and just lost it, I thought I could get it back on 1, but I had a lot in my head with where I was at.”

Stone and Sweden’s Ingrid Lindblad tied for second at par 216.
