On the eve of her final round of the 2019 Australian Women’s Open, Golf WA were fortunate enough to have a quick chat with Perth star and LPGA Tour member Hannah Green. Formerly a Junior Division 1 Girls’ Pennants player for Mt Lawley, Hannah reminisced about her start in the sport…
“I never thought when I first started golf that one day it would be my whole life. I think my favourite thing about golf is that you can play with people of any age, any gender, and any ability. My Dad is the golfer in my family, but my Mum would caddy and support me in the Graham Marsh and Golf WA events.
As a family we have great memories from those early days out on the golf course. For the Junior Girls coming through I think the most important thing I could tell you is to have fun! I know it is said all the time but if you enjoy yourself out there you are going to perform well!”
