Inaugural Australian WPGA Championship, 

Royal Queensland GC, 13-16 Jan 2022: Day One

From WPGA Australia, by Jim Tucker:

Victorian Su Oh burst on to the scene by winning Karrie Webb’s signature event as an 18-year-old and is now setting the pace for the trophy named in her honour.

Oh glided in six birdie putts during an impressive five-under-par 66 on Thursday to set the pace at the inaugural Fortinet Australian WPGA Championship at Royal Queensland.   

She shrugged off a tricky breeze, a breakfast tee time and the firm, grainy greens by riding the groove she found from the moment she stepped up at 6.45am.  Read more

From PGA Australia, by Tony Webeck:

The Royal Queensland regulars dominated the men’s event while Su Oh showed her class in the WPGA Championship. All the reaction from day one.

Aaron Pike grabbed the early lead in the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship with a course record six-under 65 only to be overtaken late by reigning Australian Amateur champion and fellow RQ regular Louis Dobbelaar.

Su Oh’s morning round of five-under 66 was a mark that stood all day in the Fortinet Australian WPGA Championship with Grace Kim (69) her nearest challenger. Karis Davidson and Julienne Soo are four strokes off the lead after rounds of one-under 70.

Here is all the reaction from an enthralling day’s play at Royal Queensland Golf Club in Brisbane.  Read at this link
