Golf Australia Express : OTG Express 153
ALLEN FINALLY A MASTER IN EUROPE IT WAS a long time coming, but American Beth Allen [above] is finally a professional tournament winner after coming from five shots back to grab the Ladies European Masters. An 11-year veteran, Allen made five birdies on the front nine at Buckinghamshire Golf Club to soar into contention, and then endured a nervous wait in the clubhouse as the world’s number one amateur Leona Maguire played the 18th hole. But Maguire found the bunker beside the final green and missed a five-foot putt that would have forced a playoff. “I wasn’t sure if it was ever going to happen, so I’m really, really happy,” Allen said. “I’ve waited a long time for this and I wanted it so, so bad. I’m ecstatic.” _______________________________ ALLENBY'S CREDIT CARD THIEF GUILTY PLEA A Hawaiian man has pleaded guilty to using Robert Allenby’s credit cards, in the latest development in the Australian golfer’s long-running saga. Allenby said he was robbed and beaten after leaving a Honolulu restaurant in January, but witness accounts by homeless people revealed he had injured himself when he passed out and hit his head on a rock. Allenby’s wallet and credit cards were taken, and local man Owen Harbison has pleaded guilty over the theft and agreed to a five-year prison term as part of a plea deal. He admitted using Allenby’s ID and credit cards to buy gift cards, jewelry, clothing and alcohol. Allenby said he wouldn’t comment on the case until after Harbison’s sentencing. _______________________________ MINJEE TOPPLES KARRIE AS OUR NO.1 AUSTRALIAN golf has a new leading lady. Former world No.1 Karrie Webb has been our best female player for 20 years, but teenage star Minjee Lee now owns top spot after a recent run of hot form saw her leapfrog the LPGA Tour veteran. Lee, 19, secured her first LPGA Tour win last month and her sixth-place finish at the Arkansas Championship saw her vault to No.16 in the world, while Webb fell back to 18th. Both players will be eyeing Australia’s two Olympic spots, with only our two highest-ranked players eligible for Rio if they are outside the world’s top 15. FP ADVERT Conditions apply.
