ROSEBURY, Australia — Sydney schoolgirl Shelly Shin has capped an incredible year to become the women’s Australian Amateur champion.Shin, 16, a member of the white-hot Golf Australia national squad, toppled home-course hero Lizzie Elmassian at The Australian to win the 36-hole final convincingly 8-&-7 in sweltering conditions.

Shin, a member at Sydney’s Concord Golf Club, was 2-up after the morning round, but came out after the break and dominated with four birdies in the next six holes to take a stranglehold on the title, eventually winning on the 29th hole with a par.
