Then again, it was that kind of day at the iconic course. The lead changed so many times it was head-spinning. Kajitani was two shots back at the start of the day. When she birdied Nos. Even a double-bogey at No. Kajitani, at the urging of a veteran caddie who has carried the bag for other Japanese amateurs at Augusta National, put it in the rearview. It was key in finishing off her day. It took another par there in an extra hole with Emilia Migliaccio, but Kajitani now has the honor of being the first player from Japan to win at Augusta National.

The year-old said she hoped this title would improve her World Amateur Golf Ranking. That should hardly be a problem. The back nine at Augusta National traditionally features some heroics. This year, the back nine was more like a hard reset as a handful of players crowded the top of the leaderboard and traded the lead.

Rose Zhang, the world No. Zhang, 17 and a favorite this week, scrambled from the first tee shot — which landed left in the trees — and got up-and-down for par from the front bunker there. Her undoing ultimately started at the 13th, where she drove it left in the creek and eventually had to go back to the tee. She pulled a 3-wood to go for the green from yards, landed in the penalty area and eventually walked away with a triple bogey that put her behind the eight-ball for the rest of the day.

She birdied 14 but bogeyed 17 and ultimately bowed out when she failed to make a footer for birdie on No. Only one player broke 70 on Saturday and it was Maja Stark, who holed an footer for birdie to make the hole cut and teed off in the first group. After firing a 77 — which included a back-nine 42 — here two years ago, Stark strung together six birdies on her way to a redemptive Photo by Kevin C. She had a share of the lead until she reached the 12th tee, where she waffled between an 8- and a 9-iron.

She chose the 9, tried to hit it hard and caught it heavy instead, leaving it in the water on her way to double-bogey. Mehaffey, a walking azalea in her pink sweater and matching skirt, went for the green in two on the par-5 13th and splashed that one, too. She scrambled for par there, played the next four in even and closed with a bogey to land at 3 over. This is likely the last time Mehaffey will compete at Augusta National, having already delayed a professional career for an extra year at Arizona State — a decision forced by the pandemic.

But the reroute brought many blessings, not the least of which was another shot at Augusta National. Saturday nearly presented a storybook swan song for Emilia Migliaccio, too. The Wake Forest senior started the day four shots off the lead, birdied the first hole and knew she was in the game. Migliaccio has been ranked as highly as No. She has won five times in college golf and is a likely selection to the U. Curtis Cup team this fall. It was firm too. Migliaccio had her mom Ulrika on the bag on Saturday, a mother-daughter team that was a first at Augusta National.

A win would have brought Emilia a five-year ANWA exemption, but her world ranking could remain high enough for a return trip. Perhaps there is another scene to play out at Augusta National in the Migliaccio story. The year-old Englishman notched his seventh career European Tour victory in his eight years as a member.
