West Australian, Hannah Green, is the only surviving Australian after the first round of match play at the US Women’s Amateur Championship at the Rolling Hill Golf Club in Pennsylvania.

Green fought back from a two hole deficit through nine holes of her match against China’s Tianyu Wang, four birdies in five holes from the 12th enabling her to eventually win at the final hole.

Eunice Kim, who led the Australians in the stroke-play phase, was outclassed by Mexico’s Maria Fassi, who despite a high scoring match was able to dispatch of of Kim in what was a one-sided contest.

Gold Coast’s Karis Davidson battled back from a two hole deficit through 14 holes against American Alyaa Abdulghany to square the match at the last only to lose at the first extra hole.

Green will now play the brilliant 13 year old Californian, Lucy Li, who finished as the second best qualifier during the stroke-play phase
