ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open

Royal Melbourne Golf Club, February 19-22

Karrie Webb

Golf championships are only as great as the names that adorn the trophy. And while the history of the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open isn’t a long one, the names on the Patricia Bridges Bowl already speak volumes of the tournament’s elite standing in world golf.

No fewer than five world No.1 players have won the title in an event that regularly attracts most of the world’s top players. And since the move was made to play the event on Melbourne’s famous Sandbelt courses, the national championship has become one of the “must-have” titles on a champion’s resume.
