After a fast start to the 2019 season had re-established her status on the LPGA Tour, NSW’s golfer Sarah Kemp has struggled on the LPGA Tour since but a 15th place finish at this week’s Indy Women In Tech Championship in Indianapolis is her best finish since a 10th place finish at the Australian Women’s Open and will ensure her status for the 2020 season.

Kemp tied with fellow Australian Su Oh for that 15th placed finish and although the pair finished a massive 13 shots behind the runaway winner, M.J Hur, it was a solid week for both.

Victoria’s Oh has been in good form in the latter half of the season after missing six consecutive cuts earlier in the year and although yet to win on the LPGA Tour she has been twice runner-up and that breakthrough win appears not too far away.

Of the other Australians, Katherine Kirk was 5th and Hannah Green 65th while New Zealand’s Lydia Ko finished 31st.

The winner Hur led from her opening round of 63 and completed her second win of the season and her 4th on the LPGA Tour.

Hur won by four shots over Nanna Koerstz Madsen with Marina Alex another two back in third place.
