Amy Olson returns to Adelaide with newly found self-confidence.
The LPGA 2018 season was a breakthrough year for Amy Olson, who returned to the ISPS Handa Women & # 39; s Australian Open for the sixth time for a sixth time.
The 26-year-old American rose to 48th place in the Rolex Rankings after he was only 30th on the world rankings a year ago.
But more importantly, she comes on the back of some hard-won conviction.
Last September, on the last day of the Evian Championship in France, Olson had at least part of the lead through everything except her last pit.
She had to settle for a draw for second place after a double-bogey on the 18th, when a par would have secured not only a big title, but also her LPGA victory for girls.
But her Evian experience has convinced Olson that she can be a great champion.
"I've learned that I have the game to win a big championship," Olson said as she prepared to return to Adelaide.
"The fact that I ended up at one point does not change that belief, I could play four solid wave rounds and I know I made pictures there.
"I can become a great champion and motivate me to keep working to give myself more opportunities."
