IT was an international clean sweep at the Australian Amateur Championships in Melbourne at the weekend with Scotland's Connor Syme taking out the Men's title and Korea's Min-ji Park the Women's.
Syme defeated Travis Smyth of NSW 3&2 in a close fought final while Park overcame fellow Korean player Ayean Cho 6&5. Both matches were played at Metropolitan Golf Club.
Both Syme and Park earn a place in their respective Australian Open fields, the Scotsman ecstatic to be teeing up at Royal Sydney in November.
“I can’t wait to get back here and play the Open,” Syme told Golf Australia after his victory.
“It’s my first time playing in Australia and I think it’s great, clearly.”
Park was also excited to be playing the LPGA co-sanctioned Australian Women's Open next month though revealed she'd have to get permission before committing.
“I’m really looking forward to participating (in the Women’s Australian Open),” she said, “but I’ll have to ask Mum first.
“But I hope to be back, definitely.”
