Su Oh wins the inaugural Australian WPGA Championship and takes home the Karrie Webb Cup

From PGA Australia, by Jim Tucker:

A devilish, skating 12-metre birdie putt from off the green gave a delighted Su Oh the first chance to flash a winner’s smile on her way to the Karrie Webb Cup.

She might still have had five holes to play, but she embraced the moment like the huge turning point it was to decide the Sunday drama at the Fortinet Australian WPGA Championship at Royal Queensland.

The 25-year-old Victorian looked to the heavens with both arms outstretched when her putt climbed a steep rise to the green and tracked into the hole.  Read more

From The New Daily, by Murray Wenzel:

Su Oh has claimed her first title in seven years, defying Grace Kim’s final-day surge to prevail by four shots after a see-sawing Australian WPGA Championship battle.

The new event saw 24 women split between men’s Australian PGA Championship groups for all four days at Royal Queensland Golf Club in Brisbane, competing for a $180,000 first prize – the same as for the men.

The hot tournament favourite after the late COVID-19 scratchings of Steph Kyriacou and Sarah Kemp, LPGA Tour regular Oh held her nerve after losing the lead midway through Sunday’s final round.

She shot a closing three-under-par 68 to win at 10 under to be the first name engraved on the Karrie Webb Cup.  Read more

From Golf Australia, by Jimmy Emanuel:

Su Oh must have been sick of the questions about finally winning again after seven years at Royal Queensland throughout this week. The Victorian answering in the most emphatic fashion by claiming the inaugural Karrie Webb Cup on Sunday.

After opening with an impressive five-under round of 66, Oh had an up and down week and a seesawing battle with new pro Grace Kim during the week of the inaugural Fortinet Australian WPGA Championship. That was until Kim made six at both the par-4 13th and par-5 15th as Oh recorded birdie in the group behind at the 13th and a cherry on top three at the par-4 last to sign for a 10-under total and four shot win over Kim.  Read more
