Ryder Cup legends: Ian Poulter

The fifth to feature in our series of Ryder Cup legends in the lead up to Whistling Straits has been the chest pumping heartbeat of Team Europe who'll be striving to don his Postman blue once more

Stephanie Meadow enjoyed her best week of the season so far when completing a top-15 finish at the Women’s Australian Open at Royal Adelaide Golf Club.

After enjoying a top-20 finish at the ISPS Handa Vic Open, the Jordanstown professional continued to shine brightly in South Australia on a tough scoring day in Seaton.

For a time it could have been even better for the Northern Irishwoman who recovered from a bogey at the first hole to reel off four straight birdies to get to 10-under par.

Unfortunately that run of scoring couldn’t continue as conditions worsened with Meadow dropping shots at 6 and 7 before picking up another birdie at 9. Starting her outward half at nine-under par, it really was all to player for as the 28-year old edged towards the top of the leaderboard.

However, as the rest of the field struggled, so did Meadow and four bogeys followed with just the one gain to the clubhouse as Meadow signed for a 74.

In the end, her six-under par tally saw her tie 13th but Meadow’s momentum continues ahead of a gap in the LPGA calendar. Another cheque, this time worth $17,629, sees her move inside the top-30 on the Race to CME Globe as South Korean Inbee Park claimed her 20th Tour title.

The seven-time major winner matched Meadow’s final round score of 74 for a 14-under par tally, a cheque worth $195,000 and a three stroke win.

Due to the virus outbreak in China, the Women’s Australian Open will be the last LPGA tournament for a month after the cancellation of three scheduled events in Thailand, Singapore and China.
