Su-Hyun Oh lifts Ladies Masters

2015 02 Su Oh Trophy
• Eighteen-year-old Aussie wins in only her second professional start
• "To win it is just amazing," said Su-Hyun Oh
• Scotland's Sally Watson finishes T6 in another strong performance


Teenager Su-Hyun Oh made four birdies in the final four holes to lift the RACV Ladies Masters title on the Gold Coast, while Scotland’s Sally Watson continued her progression up the world rankings with another strong finish.

The 18-year-old Australian, who was competing in only her second tournament as a professional, overcame clubhouse leaders Florentyna Parker and Katherine Kirk to win by three shots thanks to those consecutive birdies.

“I played well last week and I was just really happy that I was in contention in my first week. This week, I just wanted to do the same and stay in contention and see how it felt, but to win it is just amazing," Su-Hyun Oh said.

“My mental process the whole day was ‘hit one shot at a time’ and just to try and really enjoy myself out there.”

Su-Hyun Oh’s compatriot Kirk and English duo Parker and Charley Hull finished in a tie for second place, while Scotland’s Watson was among a group of six players who were tied sixth.

Watson, who along with Pamela Pretswell is receiving a funding boost from Scottish Golf Support Ltd in 2015, rose another 20 places in the world rankings to No.173 after finishing on two-under par for the tournament and took to Twitter to thank the organisers for putting on a good competition.

After Watson, the next best placed Scot was Carly Booth in T37, while Pretswell was T42 and Vicki Laing came in T46.

Kylie Walker, Michele Thomson and Heather MacRae all missed the cut, with the latter ending her two rounds on 13-over par. Despite that, MacRae was happy to be back competing again and she tweeted:
