Aussies On Tour: Sep 21

Major champion Hannah Green managed to prolong her title defence until late on the back nine on Sunday at the LPGA's Cambia Portland Classic.

A trio of late bogeys meant her hopes of going back-to-back slipped away, though Green is rounding into form nicely as she prepares to defend the KPMG Women's PGA Championship next month.

Lucas Herbert hung tough for four days at Winged Foot to earn low Aussie honours in just his fifth major start.

It was a brilliantly consistent week for Queensland young gun Maverick Antcliff, the European Tour rookie notching his first top 10 on that circuit with four straight rounds of 70.

Meanwhile, WA's Stephen Leaney and the ageless Peter Fowler secured top 20s on the American and European senior tours respectively.

But history is repeating this week as we couldn't go past Australia's newest golden girl, Steph Kyriacou.

The Sydneysider notched another top five in her rookie season on the Ladies European Tour, back-to-back 68s to finish meaning her last four results in Europe are T5, T10, runner-up and outright fifth!

She will crack the top 200 on the women's world golf rankings, rocketing from World No.1203 in February this year.

So for the third time in four weeks – an unprecedented achievement in Aussies On Tour history – we congratulate Steph Kyriacou as #AussieOfTheWeek!
