LPGA dreams for #AusJnr champ Park

Hye Park has won the Amateur Girls Girls amateur from 2019 at Coolangatta Tweed Heads Golf Club

Hye Park has always dreamed of playing golf professionally on the LPGA Tour.

And thanks to her incredible seven-fold win at the Australian Girls & # 39; Amateur today, that dream is one step closer to becoming a reality.

The Queenslander completed a memorable win at Coolangatta Tweed Heads Golf Club shooting rounds of 65-73-70, including a first round course record and earned an exemption for the coordinated ISPS Handa Women & # 39; s Australian Open next year

Park, 15 years old, started the day with a three-stage buffer above Fiona Xu in Auckland, but excessive rain and two delays caused havoc during the third round.

At the ninth hole of the day, the local led led Xu with five shots after a steady two-under-opening nine.

With her fourth major amateur title just seven holes away, a downpour of heavy rain stopped for more than an hour, with no choice but to cancel round four and reduce the championship to 54 holes.

By the time the groups returned to the course to complete round three, they could not be caught.

Park fired back against all the claims of playing partners Xu and Concord & Belinda Ji and the chasing pair fell away in the closing holes with bogies.

The student of year 9 signed for a closing three-under-par 70 round for a seven-pointed margin on Xu, who was accompanied in second place by Queenslander Lion Higo.

Outstanding performance has given the Korea-born player access to the ISPS Handa Women & # 39; s Australian Open in February 2020 in Adelaide and the IMG Academy Junior World Championships in July in California.

The open fourth place was won by Ji, with Charley Jacobs from South Australia who fired a sublime seven under 66 round to share fifth with Hannah Reeves.
