Great to play this big event in Australia.
The Open is joint sanctioned by the LPGA Tour and ALPG, ensuring that it is one of very few truly global golf events staged in Oceania annually. And since the tournament was added to the LPGA Tour’s global schedule, the national championship has become one of the “must-have” titles on any champion’s resume.
I could not play as strong as last week in Canberra. It was a struggle on this very tough course with fast refined greens. The only highlight was 1 eagle [nearly albatross] on the 450 m shortest par5. After the 76 first round I looked forward to play better on Friday. But no, 79 to miss the weekend in this great event.
