Golf Australia Express : GA Express 223
GRIFFIN WINS ORDER OF MERIT VICTORIA’S Matthew Griffin finished the Australian PGA Championship in a share of 40th position but was left with more than enough reason to celebrate after winning the PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit. His reward: a place in the Open Championship next year at Royal Birkdale in England and two World Golf Championship events, which have the potential for more doors to open for the likeable 33-year-old. "It is what you play golf for – to play in the Open Championship and the WGCs," Griffin said. "It will be my first major. I have grown up as a kid dreaming of playing in a major. That is what I have played golf my whole life for – to get to a major and see how you go up against the best players in the world. "If I play well, I get Fed Ex Cup points and it opens a new world."

Golf Australia (GA) and MPower MSL have announced a landmark strategic agreement that will allow all Australian golf club members to check their handicap information and scoring history via the Golf Australia home page at www. golf.org.au from April 1, 2017. GA will invest in additional software, technical and consulting services through MPower MSL. This technology partnership will enable GA to develop accurate, real-time insights into membership trends and lead the industry in responding to changes in golf participation. _____________________________________________ GREEN MISSES LPGA CARD HANNAH Green has missed out on a full LPGA Tour card after finishing in a tie for 67th place at the stage three qualifying school in Florida. The West Australian needed a top 20 finish in order to secure category 12 membership, which amounts to priority membership. The 20-year-old finished at 6-over after five rounds at Daytona Beach, 10 shots off the cut-off point of 4-under. The qualifying school was won by American Jaye Marie Green on 13 under, one shot clear of Iceland's Olafia Kristinsdottir. TRAPS AROUND the
