The second round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur continued into Friday after a rain delay of more than seven hours Thursday. A total of 51 golfers out of 60 finished their second round Friday morning Champions Retreat.

Thirty golfers advanced to play the final round at Augusta National, the home of the Masters. They’ll play a practice round Friday and then the final round Saturday.

Following the second round’s completion, the cut line sat at plus-five. Beatrice Wallin and Latanna Stone are currently tied for the lead, having finished even par through 36 holes. Three players – Amari Avery, Emma Spitz and Amalie Leth-Nissen – sit one over par.

Avery is no stranger to the AWNA, having played at last year’s tournament.

“It will be a lot compared to last year,” Avery said of finishing her second round on Friday. “It was a lot smoother having to only play one round a day, but I’m only finishing two holes [on Friday], and they’re not too hard.

“So two holes, 7:30, and then head over to Augusta and have some fun.”

Rose Zhang, the No. 1 amateur in the world, currently sits tied for ninth at three over par. Rachel Heck, who won the NCAA individual golf title as a freshman, sits just inside the cut line at five over par.

Hailey Borja, a sophomore at Michigan, is also tied for ninth after finishing her round following the rain delay. She took advantage, following up two bogeys on Thursday with a plus-three to finish off her round.

“It’s all about being patient,” Borja said on Thursday following the rain delay. ” I really thought about the positives of today. Yeah, it’s bad weather, and I think everyone here is trying to do the best they can and have the best conditions that we can play on.”
