Victorian golfer Sue Wooster is a US Senior Women’s Amateur finalist for the second consecutive year having beaten Californian Caryn Wilson in today’s semi-final in Cedar Rapids in Iowa and tomorrow she will face Oregon’s Lara Tennant.

Twelve months ago, Wooster lost 3 & 2 to Tennant in the 2018 final Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club, Vero Beach, Florida, and tomorrow she gets the opportunity for atonement.

57-year old six-time grandmother, Wooster, was never behind in her semi-final match against Wilson but she had to fight tooth and nail to advance to the final, a par at the last enough to see her through 1 up.

“I’m not sure if I’m over last year,” said Wooster earlier in the week of her 3-and-2 loss to Tennant last October. “I’m just taking one step at a time, but I’ve got a chance. I feel pretty proud of myself for getting this far and that gives me some confidence going forward.”

“Imagine, 132 players and it comes down to us again,” said Wooster after today's match. “I’m just going to give it my all.

"This morning on the back nine [vs. Webb] I nearly lost that match. I went out with the attitude this afternoon that I was going to give it my all and just try and play a lot more aggressively. If I won, I won. If I didn’t, so what. I’ll be happy.”

Wooster has a remarkable record in senior women’s events in recent times. In 2018, she won the Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur, the Canadian Women’s Amateur, the Australian Senior Women’s Amateur and the North & South Senior Women’s Amateur.

Tomorrow however she gets the chance to add the greatest prize in senior women’s amateur golf to that line-up.
