Ha Na Jang played her last six holes at 5-under par with an eagle and birdie on the final two holes to claim the 2017 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open title. Jang carded a 4-under 69 to come from four shots back to win at Royal Adelaide by three shots over Nanna Madsen, picking up her fourth career win on the LPGA Tour and first of the 2017 season.

American Lizette Salas Builds Two-Shot Lead at the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open

Lizette Salas takes a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. Salas leads hometown favorites Su Oh and Sarah Jane Smith and Thailand’s Pornanong Phatlum by two after shooting a two-under 71 in the third round at Royal Adelaide.

Two-time Solheim Cup veteran Salas hopes to make it onto her third U.S. roster this August. Salas is currently 24th in the USA Solheim Cup points standings. A win this week would put her in a good position to make the roster as points are increased by one-third during this year’s tournaments, and doubled for the season’s majors.


Sarah Jane Smith takes charge at ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open

Sarah Jane Smith is on track to win in her home country. Smith sits atop a packed leaderboard at 9-under par and holds the 36-hole lead at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open. The Australian native leads Lizette Salas, Pornanong Phatlum, Marissa Steen and Caroline Hedwall by one shot and has a large group of pursuers with 18 players within four shots of the lead.

For Smith, the No. 107 player in the Rolex Rankings with only six career top-10 finishes; this is new territory looking to pick up her first win on the LPGA Tour. The Queenslander made three consecutive birdies on the front nine finishing with six on the day and admitted it would be pretty special to win this week.


Aussie Katherine Kirk takes early lead at ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open

Katherine Kirk has taken the early lead at the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open, going out in 33 and bringing it home with a 32. The Australian native carded a bogey-free 8-under par, 65 on Thursday to take a two-stroke lead, taking advantage of ideal conditions in the morning at Royal Adelaide. Kirk, a 14-year veteran, has been winless on the LPGA Tour since 2010, finishing 110th on the money list in 2016.

Katherine Kirk is the first Aussie to have at least a share of the first round lead at the Australian Open since Aussie Sarah Kemp shared the first round lead with Stacy Lewis in 2012. Kirk has two career LPGA victories - the 2010 Navistar LPGA Classic and the 2008 CN Canadian Women’s Open. Kirk has made 142 starts with eight top-10 finishes since her last win heading into this week. Kirk’s best result in 2016 was a T21 finish at the Marathon Classic presented by Owens Corning and O-I.

Reid had a chance to win on the 72nd hole of the tournament after hitting a superb three-wood to the front of the green on the par-518th hole, but took three putts from long range to send the tournament into extra time.
