PERTH'S Hannah Green has become Australia's first female golf major victor since 2006 after a stunning triumph in the Women's PGA Championship this morning. Her level temperament, she said, was built for a major championship stage. Though she's only 22, well, she's naturally begun thinking about paying the gift forward one day the way Webb did to her.
"Even just to be winning a major as my first event, I'm just so over the moon".
CROMWELL, Conn. - Chez Reavie won the Travelers Championship for his second PGA Tour title and first in 11 years, closing with a 1-under 69 for a four-stroke victory over Keegan Bradley and Zack Sucher.
The support from young guns Becky Kay and Grace Kim, this week's Karrie Webb scholarship winners, was probably worth three or four shots alone across the four days and we can only hope Hannah is mobbing them on an 18th green one day. He missed a short birdie putt on the par-4 18th in regulation. "I think I need to just slow things down and take my time and make sure I'm not rushing into any shots".
Green answered her final challenge with the bunker save, and the celebration was on.
"Being able to stay in a house with her (Webb), watching everything she does in a tournament ... it definitely gave me a big insight into what it was like", Green said after her win at Hazeltine National in Minnesota.
"I've always wanted to win an event, and to win a major championship as my first is insane".
Following her dad, Tau, along to his Sunday rounds at Hillview Golf Course in Perth was the start of a stunning golfing journey which helped turn Hannah Green in to Australia's latest major champion. In doing so, Korda registered her best finish in a major championship and her second career top-10 in a major (T-10, 2018 U.S. Women's Open). Anything to just be winning in majors the first event.Читайте также: Melania Trump's top aide picked as press secretary
It is why her win is being hailed as such an achievement, particularly outside Australia where few, if any, knew her name before today.
She posted a round of 2-under 70 to hang on to her wire-to-wire dream at 9-under 207 after 54 holes, but Saturday's round wasn't without some wobbliness coming down the stretch.
Pavan finished with a bogey-free 6-under 66 to match Fitzpatrick at 15-under 273 at Munchen Eichenried.
Nelly Korda was within one shot until a soft bogey on the par-5 15th.
She doesn't own rain trousers - they're too noisy and baggy - and her boyfriend, touring pro Jarryd Felton, had to run back to the house to get her jacket.
Webb was the last Australian to claim a major at the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship, since rebranded the ANA Inspiration.
The surprise was Ariya Jutanugarn, who started the final round one shot behind on a course that measured almost 6,800 yards, flawless for her power.
After rolling in the key putt from around 10 feet on the 18th, she was mobbed by friends on the green and wiped tears from her eyes moments later.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
