Ga-young Lee of Korea defeated Yu Chiang Hou of Taiwan in the 2016 Golf NSW Women’s Amateur Championship.

Lee was never headed in the event, getting off to a flying start being 7up after 9 holes, taking just 29 strokes for the front nine along the way.

Hou staged somewhat of a comeback and by early in the afternoon round, had managed to pare the lead back to 1 hole.

Lee had too much in reserve however, and when Hou missed a makeable par put on the par 3 15th ( 33rd hole) the match was over with 16-year old Lee taking the match 4 and 3.

Speaking through an interpreter Lee was very gracious about her win.

“It’s my biggest win and I’m glad I won.”

“I played well on the front nine, but the pressure got me a bit on the back nine.”

“Hou Got better as the match went on, She played very well.”

Lee plans to make a career as a professional on the Japanese LPGA tour.

“ I want to be the best on the Tour.” She smiled.
