Chiara Horder dominates the 36-hole final

Chiara Horder: The US Women’s Amateur Championship is one of the largest amateur tournaments in women’s golf. With an outstanding performance in the final against Annabelle Pancake from the USA, Chiara Horder from Munich wins the tournament. After Leonie Harm and Aline Krauter, she is the third German winner of the Women’s Amateur Championship.

Chiara Horder wins the Women’s Amateur Championship

The final of the Women’s Amateur Championship will be played over 36 holes and Horder took control of the match from the start. A bogey by Anabelle Pancake on hole 1 needed Horder to win the first hole, but on holes 3 and 5 she managed that quite well on her own with birdies. Pancake showed resistance with a birdie on hole 9 and on the back nine of the first round the two opponents repeatedly took holes from each other. However, Horder held the lead firmly in his hand and was able to extend it significantly on the first holes of the second round. She went up to 5 with two birdies and then held on to par while Pancake struggled and conceded three bogeys over the next four holes. That gave Horder an 8 hole lead and she was getting closer and closer to an early end of the round. But Pancake showed teeth and reduced the lead to six holes with two hole wins. But in the end Chiara Horder was too strong and closed the sack with a birdie on lane 12. With 7&6, the 20-year-old convincingly wins one of the most important amateur tournaments.

Chiara Horder: “I get goose bumps”

“I feel great. I’m so happy. I’m so happy that I won,” Horder said, exuberantly expressing her feelings. “I mean, it’s one of the biggest amateur championships. I can’t believe it. We’ve played so many rounds in the last few days. It was like 11 rounds and then we played almost 36 today, it was exhausting. But I stuck with it and enjoyed it. It’s very special for me.”

Her victory secured Horder a place in the Amundi Evian Championship and the AIG Women’s Open this summer, as well as the Chevron Championship and the US Women’s Open in 2024. “It gives me goosebumps. It’s amazing. The possibilities are incredible and I’m so lucky. I can’t believe I’ll be on the tee then. It’s definitely a goal to play in these majors. I mean, to play in the AIG Women’s Open is just amazing. It is definitely a dream.” The German national player, who is ranked 273 in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking® (WAGR®), also traditionally receives an invitation to next year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship.
