Green claims maiden LPGA title

Perth-born golfer Hannah Green has become the third Australian women to win a LPGA title.

Green held onto a nervy finish to claim a one shot victory over defending champion Sung Hyun Park.

The 22-year-old said she couldn't believe she was in the position she had found herself in.

“I’ve always wanted to win an event, and to win a major championship as my first is crazy.” Green said.

Green's boyfriend Jarryd Felton witness the whole event.

In a growing trend Green becomes the third winner of the past five LPGA events to win their LPGA title.
