Who is Lottie Woad?

Lottie Woad has joined the long list of superstars to have won at Augusta National, so let’s get to know more about the young Englishwoman…

 

Lottie Woad has etched her name into the annals of history at Augusta National by winning the 2024 Augusta National Women’s Amateur.

Having made her debut at the prestigious amateur event last year, she has tasted victory at the second time of asking, winning by one shot from Bailey Shoemaker.

“I knew teeing off, only having a two-shot lead, at some point during the round someone was probably going to overtake me with it probably being scorable,” she said.

“Because I looked at the pins before and they were in some pretty nice locations, so I was prepared for someone to go low.

“When I ended up being two back, I was like, okay, so I’ve got these birdie chances that they have. Just gave myself the chances at the end and luckily holed some putts.”

Woad has proudly joined the same winner’s board as Rose Zhang and Jennifer Kupcho who have won this event in previous years, so let’s get to know a little more about the young English star.
