Victoria’s Sue Wooster has been defeated in the final of the US Senior Women's Amateur Championship, the 56 year old losing to 51 year old Lara Tennant of Portland in Oregon by the margin of 3&2 over 18 holes at the Orchid Island Golf and Beach Resort in Vero Beach in Florida.

As the runner-up, Wooster receives an exemption into the 2019 U.S. Senior Women’s Open, as well as a three-year exemption into the U.S. Senior Women’s Amateur and exemptions into the 2019 U.S. Women’s Amateur and U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur.

“I’m pretty stoked, you know,” said Wooster. “Obviously I'm upset I lost because I wanted to win but if you said at the start of the week I would've been in the final, I would've been over the moon. I'm proud of myself. I think tonight I'll sit back and feel I did pretty good overall.

“I don't know if I had opportunities to eventually win it, but I could have put some pressure on her and I didn't. I think I just couldn't hole the putts today.

“I was just missing and I was probably just over-reading a bit, and nothing was working. I hit some nice shots in, I just couldn't capitalize. When I three-putted No. 13, I knocked my chances down a lot. That gave her a breather.”
