Golf Australia - - AROUND THE TRAPS -

WEST Australia’s Hannah Green will play on the LPGA Tour in 2018.

The 20-year-old was one of 10 Symetra Tour play­ers who sealed their card at the re­cent Tour Cham­pi­onship. Green fin­ished sec­ond on the Tour’s Order of Merit, which guar­an­teed her card and also gained her Rookie of the Year hon­ours.

“It’s pretty cool to think I’ll be on the LPGA next year,” Green said.

“My time on the Symetra Tour has been a big learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence about my golf game and about my­self as a per­son.

“I’m glad I got to spend this time on the Symetra Tour in order to get to the LPGA.”

With three vic­to­ries and 12 top-10 fin­ishes, Green be­came one of only five play­ers in Symetra Tour his­tory to sur­pass $100,000 in prize­money in a sin­gle sea­son.

Fol­low­ing the Symetra Tour sea­son, Green was due to head back home to take on the men in the WA Open.
