On Tsubasa Kajitani (1-over, playoff winner, 2021 Augusta National Women’s Amateur Champion)

Paige Mackenzie on Kajitani: “It’s a dream she woke up with this morning and it took 19 holes. A very courageous effort today.”

Mackenzie: “She’s going to be a role model for a lot of young girls watching today.”

Mackenzie: “She’s had a lot of international experience. She’s played in big moments -- none bigger than this -- but a very experienced young player.”

Tsubasa Kajitani speaking with Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Fred Ridley and NBC Sports’ Mike Tirico in Butler Cabin following her victory: “I wasn’t expecting to win the tournament, but once I did, I was very happy to be here (at Augusta National Golf Club).”

On Emilia Migliaccio (1-over, 2nd)

Tirico: “You look at her resume and it is completely full and impressive.”

Mackenzie: “A very accomplished worldwide player.”

On Rose Zhang (2-over, T-3rd)

Mackenzie: “I cannot believe she is only 17 years old, every single time I watch her play, she has incredible poise in these big moments.”

Kay Cockerill: “Poise and patience are her middle name…she is wise beyond her 17-years.”

Trevor Immelman: “This young woman is a superstar in the making. You read all the achievements she’s already had, being just 17 years old, it’s incredible.”

On the 2021 edition of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur

Tirico: “It is April in Augusta, Georgia. Those words and these visions are always anticipated, but this year, seeing it feels even more special, doesn’t it? After not being here a year ago -- and given the reason this spring tradition was paused in 2020 -- the grandeur of green fairways, Georgia pines and blooming azaleas, if possible, is even more appreciated this year.”

Cockerill on the state of women’s amateur golf: “There’s international growth, so many great players coming from every corner of the world…they’re winning these great championships as young teens.”
