Golf Australia Express : Issue 21
IFEVER there was a place fit to hold a golf tournament, then Queensland’s Gold Coast is it. And with players from across the world converging on the RACV Royal Pines Resort once again, the Ladies Masters is shaping up for some really hot golf. During its 22-year history the co- sanctioned LET and ALPG Tour event has attracted healthy television ratings with viewers tuned in to watch the game’s elite women tear up the manicured resort course. Think names like reigning champion and world No.1 Yani Tseng, who finished the 2011 event with an amazing 24-under the card, and seven-time champion Karrie Webb who shot a remarkable 26-under for the 2010 title. Webb won’t be at Royal Pines this year to make it eight, but Tseng returns with England’s Laura Davies and local gal Katherine Hull. AMERICAN STACY Lewis enjoyed a phenomenal 2011. The world No.10 won her first LPGA event—the Kraft Nabisco Championship—by three shots after a head-to-head battle with world No.1 Yani Tseng. The 26-year old recorded another 11 top 10 finishes from 23 starts, including two runner-up finishes at the Evian Masters and Canadian Women’s Open. She finished 2011 4th on the LPGA Money List. LEXITHOMPSON, 16, is one of the hottest players on the women’s circuit. She broke through for her first professional win at September’s Navistar LPGA Classic and followed it up in December with her first LET event win at the Dubai Ladies Masters. Thompson played here in 2011 and the experience of having played the Royal Pines layout— coupled with her recent winning form— sets her up for a genuine assault at the 2012 title.
