One year ago, Anna Davis’ life changed.
Heading to Augusta, Ga., last spring, she was just another junior golfer. Then, one special round changed everything.

Winning the Augusta National Women’s Amateur is quite the feat. But doing is back-to-back? Davis hopes to be the first.
Ahead of her title defense at Augusta National, GOLF spent time with Davis out in California. Here’s how she’s prepping to defend her crown (and bucket hat). (For more on Davis, read the April 2023 edition of GOLF Magazine.)
