Hannah Green wins again

Sep 4, 2019

Australia's Hannah Green has franked her US Open win earlier this year by claiming a second victory on the LPGA Tour at the Portland Classic.
Green started the day three shots behind US teenager qualifier Yealimi Noh and that was the deficit she faced with four holes to play.
Hannah edged to within two shots with a birdie on 15 and a hole later was within one shot after Noh bogeyed the 16th. Another birdie by Green at 17 and they were tied on -21. Green remained steady with par on the final hole while Noh bogeyed to hand victory to Green by one shot.
Noh was aiming to become the third Monday qualifier to win on the LPGA. She was going to play College golf this year but instead turned pro in February and nearly capped off a fairy tale first year on tour, but it wasn’t to be.
Green’s final round 67 included 6 birdies and a sole bogey on the 11th. She picked up USD$195,000 for her week’s work.
The win sees Green rise to #20 in the official world rankings, while Minjee Lee bypassed the event and slipped to 6th spot.
With the PGA Tour finished for season 2018/19 and set to begin in mid-September, all focus was on the season ending secondary Korn Ferry Tour Championship. This was the last chance for players to earn a card for the main Tour next season by finishing in the Top 25. And Cameron Davis did just that. He played his final nine holes in -4 to jump into T13 and that was enough to see him finish 21st in the OOM. He earns a full card for the PGA season and joins Rhein Gibson and Cameron Percy. Unfortunately Curtis Luck fell from 15 at the start of the event to T29, falling just short of earning his full card. He’ll remain on the Korn Ferry Tour fully exempt, alongside Jamie Arnold and Brett Coletta who also missed out.
The only other golfing action this past week was on the Champion’s Tour, where Stephen Leaney and David McKenzie flew the Australian flag. McKenzie finished T12 and Leaney T53.
