TERREY HILLS, NEW SOUTH WALES, Australia (Jan. 25, 2019) – Queenslander Lisa Edgar won the New South Wales Amateur on Friday, recording the biggest victory of her young career.

“Yeah it feels pretty good,” she smiled after defeating Grace Kim.

It was something of an unexpected performance for the 19-year-old, who by her own admission said if she had missed the cut this week she was heading home for a bit of time away from the game.

“I played really well this morning. All credit to Grace she fought back this afternoon. We had a really good match,” Edgar said. “I didn’t expect it at all. I don’t know what to say or how to react, it’s a new experience for me.”

Edgar was in control all day, at one point getting out to a six-hole lead on the front nine, but Kim being the competitor she is, came back hard.

Momentum swung on the back nine, and the experienced NSW State team rep clawed it back to 2 down.

The 17th was as far as it was going to go, however, and when Kim lipped out for par, all Edgar had to do was roll in her putt, and the title was hers.

Edgar was expecting plenty of congratulatory messages when she opened up her phone after the win.

“Mum and dad were messaging me up to about a minute before I hit off. I expect there will be a lot more there now,” she smiled.
