Inspiring the next generation

Bank of America believes that a single swing can inspire an entire generation and is proud to support the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in their efforts to provide more pathways and visibility for women’s progress. Triumph was on full display in Augusta, Georgia, from March 31st to April 3rd. An international field of women amateurs competed over 54 holes of stroke play, making history on the iconic course.

“Milestones”

Female athletes receive only a fraction of the coverage that male athletes do. But young girls can’t be what they can’t see. That’s why Bank of America is proud to support Augusta National to spotlight female triumph.
