Hannah Green makes birdie at 12 on day one of the Evian Championship 2019.
Hannah Green has won the prestigious Outstanding Woman in Sport Award tonight at the Australian Women & # 39; s Health Women in Sport Awards in Sydney.
Green enjoyed a breakout year on the LPGA Tour, the 2019 KPMG Women & # 39; s PGA Championship wire-to-wire before re-saluting at the Cambia Portland Classic a few months later.
Its world ranking has risen from 140 to number 18 in the world in 2019 alone.
Youth and Sports Minister Richard Colbeck congratulated Hannah on winning the prize and for her many achievements in sport so far
"Hannah is a true champion, who spectacularly won the Women's PGA Championship in June this year," said Minister Colbeck.
"Hannah & # 39; s victory was the first big win by an Australian woman since Karrie Webb at the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship and she only became the third Australian woman to win a major.
"Sports stars like Hannah provide inspiration for all Australians, but especially young women, to do sports and follow their dreams.
The Morrison government has provided $ 50,000 for this year's event, including the Outstanding Woman in Sport Award. "Our gifted sportswomen all deserve recognition for their achievements and I acknowledge all other winners of tonight's ceremony."
Previous winners of this prize included boxer Skye Nicolson, skier Britt Cox and rower Kim Crow, all of whom represented Australia in the elite race.
