Singapore: History-making Hannah Green heads to Sentosa Golf Club next week with her sights set on breaking into the top-10 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Ranking in 2022.

Australian Green has enjoyed a memorable start to the year, following up her victory in the Vic Open a fortnight ago by creating history at the TPS Murray River last week, becoming the first female to win a 72-hole mixed gender tournament on any of the world’s leading golf Tours.

On the back of those performances, the 25-year-old is sure to be among the favourites when the HSBC Women’s World Championship tees-off on March 3 over the Tanjong Course at award-winning Sentosa Golf Club, a Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

Runner-up in the Lion City in 2021, Green said: “I really enjoyed last year’s event in Singapore, and was pleased to give myself a chance to win on the final day. This event is lovely, and Singapore is one of the favorite destinations on our calendar. 

“I took some time out over Christmas and was thrilled to win in Australia, which hopefully sets me up well for the LPGA season. I’m looking forward to starting my LPGA season in Singapore … and hoping to keep it going.”

Of her second victory in as many weeks that saw her rise to 29th in the World Ranking, Green said:  “It feels amazing. I’m so grateful that I came. It actually wasn’t my plan to play [after winning the previous week’s Vic Open]. I was hoping to go back to Perth … but I think things happen for a reason.

“I wanted to win these two events as soon as I said I’d enter them. I didn’t think it was a ridiculous goal to try and get me name of these trophies. Now that that’s done, hopefully I can continue this momentum.

“I want to be in the top 10 in the world and I think I can achieve that. If I keep playing the golf that I am now, hopefully I can get there.”

A three-time Australian representative in the Asia-Pacific Women’s Amateur Team Championship for the Queen Sirikit Cup (2014-16), Green also played a role in the Asia-Pacific triumph in the inaugural Patsy Hankins Trophy in 2016, a Ryder Cup-style match event that pits leading females from the Asia-Pacific against their European rivals.
