Golf Australia Express : GA Express 289
COVER STORY average of her career. “I hadn’t won since 2016 but I felt like I’ve been playing really well and I’ve had a lot of top-10 finishes,” Lee said. “I feel like it was a long time coming. Going into the Open, it’s certainly nice to have a win.” All aspects of Lee’s game appear to be as sharp as they’ve ever been as she enters her fifth Women’s US Open. But in order to break Australia’s drought at the majors, she will need to overcome the strongest field in women’s golf and find success around a foreign layout. “I haven’t seen the course before, so I’ll just go there and maybe have a couple of practice rounds,” Lee said. “I’ll just try my best and I know I’m hitting it pretty solid and putting it solid, so I think we’ll have a great week.” Whether she emerges victorious or not, there is certainly enough to suggest that Minjee Lee will eventually become the third Australian to capture a major championship. Eapart? Annoyingly, only time will give us the SARAH KEMP The 32-year-old is making her second tournament appearance and first since 2011, where she missed the cut at the Broadmoor Resort with rounds of 77 and 78. Kemp hasn’t played on Tour since the Women’s Australian Open in February, but she has enjoyed a solid season on the ALPG, collecting four top-five finishes. KATHERINE KIRK The Queenslander began the 2018 season well, finishing fourth at the Women’s Australian Open, but has struggled for form ever since. Kirk is making her 14th start at the Women’s U.S Open after finishing T48 last year and was T25 in 2007. SU OH The Victorian has shot back into form since changing equipment last month, posting four solid results, including a share of fourth at last week’s Volvik Championship. Oh, 22, is making her fifth tournament appearance and had her best result last year, finishing T56. SARAH JANE SMITH The 33-year-old Queenslander has played six previous Women’s U.S Opens and has found some much-needed form just in time, finishing T32 last week after missing five straight cuts. Smith’s best finish at this event came in 2013, where she finished T46. KARRIE WEBB The legendary Queenslander has received a special exemption from the USGA to make her 23rd tournament appearance. Webb won back-to-back in 2000 and 2001 and was T44 last year. The 43-year-old hasn’t made many appearances this season as she continues to wind back her schedule, but you can never write her off.
