The Australian Girls' Amateur Championship is open to players aged under 18 years on the first day of play. It is contested over 72-holes stroke play (with a cut after 36-holes ). The handicap limit is 15.4.

The Australian Girls’ Amateur Championship was first played in conjunction with the Australian Women’s Amateur Championship qualifying rounds in 1953 at Royal Perth Golf Club and was won by Margaret Masters, claiming victory over 36 holes. The event remained 36 holes until 1975 and 1976 when the championship was played over three rounds of stroke play, while in 1977 it was played over four rounds of stroke play. It returned to a 36 holes format from 1978 to 1983, before a separate championship was introduced in January 1984. From 1984, the championship was played over 36-holes of qualifying with the leading 16 qualifiers contesting match play for the title.

From 1993 the age limit changed from under 21 to under 18, and in 2000 the format changed to 54-holes stroke play. From 2012 it has been played over 72-holes.

REPORT:

National Squad member Minjee Lee (WA) became the first player since Victorian Jane Lock in 1975 to hold both the Australian Amateur and Australian Junior titles in the same year with victory at the Australian Girls’ Amateur at Mount Lawley Golf Club.

The World Number 2 amateur and Royal Fremantle member posted rounds of 69-71-71-68 to finish at 13-under par and win by 8 strokes after holding off an early challenge from Mount Lawley member Hannah Green (WA) and Su Hyun Oh (VIC).

Lee had six birdies in seven holes between the 8th and the 14th.

Lee, who heads to Taiwan on Sunday with Oh to represent Australia at the Queen Sirikit Cup said she was pleased with the victory in her home state.
“It feels good to win it at home and I played well so I think it’s a deserved win” Lee said.

“Both my iron play and my putting were good this week. I needed to make birdies during today’s round and I just hit one good shot after another and it ended up being a chain of birdies.”

Lee earned an exemption into the 2014 ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open with the victory but was already exempt with her Australian Amateur victory.

Green finished on 5-under par in second place while Oh finished in third place at 4-under par.

Jenny Lee (SA) finished in fourth place while Julienne Soo (VIC) finished fifth.
