• Aussies on Tour, Green's win in Singapore a perfect start to a big year

West Australian Hannah Green's win at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore on Sunday holds a lot more weight behind it than the trophy and $410,000 payday.

Green's fourth LPGA Tour title all but secures her a ticket to the Paris Olympics being held in August of this year.

Coming into the week, Green sat 23rd on the Olympic rankings, 50 spots clear of nearest Aussie Grace Kim, with this win most likely pushing her up into the top-20.

With Minjee Lee sitting at fifth, the Lee-Green duo who teamed up in Tokyo 2020 is looking very likely to represent Australia again at Paris 2024.

Finishing in a tie for fifth in 2020, agonisingly short of the podium and a medal, Green will head to Paris with high expectations of herself.

Her win this week means Green now joins an illustrious group that includes Karrie Webb, Jan Stephenson, Minjee Lee and Rachel Hetherington as Aussies with at least four wins on the LPGA Tour.

Elsewhere, bad weather in Florida has meant that the PGA TOUR's Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches will be finished on Monday (US time). Min Woo Lee is currently T16, five shots off the pace, with 11 holes remaining in his final round.

Haydn Barron continued his positive start to his DP World Tour career, with a T20 at the SDC Championship in South Africa, while Matt Jones finished solo-14th at the LIV Golf Jeddah event.
