The Australian Men's Amateur Championship is contested over holes stroke play qualifying, with the leading 64 players progressing to elimination match play.
It is open to players of all ages with an initial field size of players. This then became known as the amateur championship of Australia. After the formation of the Australian "Jan amature" Union inthe Amateur Championship of Australia event was held under its auspices and winners of the Victorian Golf Cup were recognised officially to be Australian amateur champions.
The Australian Women's Amateur Championship is contested over holes stroke play qualifying, with the leading 32 players progressing to match play.
It is open to players of all ages with an initial field size of 78 players. It took 36 epic holes, but when the moment presented itself, Matias Sanchez grabbed his spot in with two incredibly calm hands.
Sanchez, 18, played inspired Jan amature today in one of the greatest finals in living memory to beat Min Woo Lee 1-up to win the Australian Amateur Championship, presented by Swinging Skirts. The Royal Melbourne member peeled off 11 birdies in the hole final that will long be remembered for its incredible shot-making by both players on a Yarra Yarra course set up Jan amature challenge.
Remarkably, 16 holes were either won by, or halved in, birdies throughout a match of incredible ebbs and flows, none more so than the final three holes each won by Sanchez after Lee looked home at 2-up on the 34th tee. My Jan amature up the last got lucky, but when I had Jan amature last putt to win 2m up the hillI could see the line and hit a good Jan amature and then the feeling was just amazing.
With Lee sitting 2. Lee, however, watched in disbelief as his drive ran into a bunker m up on the right, then his approach landed hard on the back of the green and scurried up the hill to a position from which bogey was his ultimate penalty.
Lee was seemingly hemmed in by trees up the right of the 14th fairway and was urged by his bagman to play for safety towards the 15th tee.
The Royal Fremantle member had other ideas, though, and carved a low running slice that absolutely thrilled the crowd and gave them a great taste of what lies ahead in his career. But Sanchez dug deep when it mattered most and history will "Jan amature" him as a more than worthy champion. Choi, the world No. Choi, the individual champion as Korea romped to the World Amateur Teams Championship Jan amature Mexico last year, was a comfortable winner of the medal as the stroke play champion on Wednesday, too.
And she lived up to her No. But, through an interpreter, she said her game had improved to the point that she would feel far more comfortable at Royal Adelaide next month. The surprisingly powerful Choi was 2-up at the halfway point of the hole final at Yarra Yarra and was quickly under pressure when she bogeyed the 19th hole in the Jan amature to have her lead halved.
But every time Lee pushed, Choi had a response and eventually won the 34th hole to take an unassailable 4-up lead.
