HANNAH GREEN WINS AT HAZELTINE NATIONAL, WOMEN’S PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
Australia’s Hannah Green won her first major title as she held off defending champion Park Sung-hyun to win the Women’s PGA Championship.
Green, 22, is ranked 114th in the world and had never won an LPGA event before the tournament at Hazeltine National.
England’s Mel Reid held the clubhouse lead on six under as overnight leader Green faltered around the turn.
Park made birdie on the last to reach eight under but Green escaped a bunker to putt for par and win by one stroke.
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.
“I am pretty much speechless,” she said after her win at the Minnesota course.
“I was really nervous playing the last five holes and I’m just happy to make that putt on the last. It really is surreal.
