AA Australian Womens Open 2015

The 2015 Australian Women’s Open field has been announced with six of the world’s top 12 players reported to be participating, including Lydia Ko, the new world number one.
At the weekend Ko became the youngest ever world number one (male or female) at just 17 years, nine months and seven days old. Incredibly, this will be her fifth Australian Open.
The New Zealander has only ever finished the Australian Open inside the top 20, but this year is set to be her hardest test to date.
Korea will be well represented at the event with stars, Na Yeon Choi (No.12), So Yeon Ryu (No.7) and joint 2012 Royal Melbourne runner-up and Kyu-Jung Baek (No.11) participating.
China’s Shanshan Feng (world No.4), one of the Women’s golf’s most consistent and reliable performers will be making sure it doesn’t all go Korea’s way.
And then look out for No.9 Karrie Webb, a strong Australian contender who has already won five national championships and will defend the Patricia Bridges Bowl which she won so convincingly last year at Victoria.
With the final field released today, Women’s Australian Open tournament director Trevor Herden said “It’s a real testament to what the Open has come to mean to so many around the world that we can attract such quality and depth,”
“We are one of only four national Open championships (US, British and Canadian) on the LPGA Tour’s schedule which definitely adds to the attraction of the tournament and its significance.”
