Addie Baggarly and Annabell Fuller have accepted invitations to compete in the Augusta National Women’s Amateur

Two women’s golfers – Addie Baggarly and Annabell Fuller – will represent the University of Florida at the historic Augusta National Women’s Amateur, the pair announced Friday.

On April 4, 2018, Gators Golf alum and current Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley announced the commencement of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, the only event played by women on the prestigious course. The event was established to inspire greater interest and participation in the women’s game by creating a new, exciting, and rewarding pathway for these players to fulfill their dreams.

With the Masters played the following week, the Augusta National Women’s Amateur is considered one of the most esteemed amateur golf events for women.
