The series of events jointly sanctioned between the PGA Tour of Australasia and the WPGA Tour rolled into Cobram / Barooga, joint towns on opposite sides of the Murray River in Northern Victoria, this week for yet another event in the Webex Player Series and it is last week’s Women’s Victorian Open winner, Hannah Green who leads the way.
This week’s event brings both the men’s and the women’s fields together for the $200,000 TPS Murray River in honour of Jarrod Lyle where both genders compete against each other, separated only by the tees which the respective fields play from.
Green added a second round of 65 to her opening 64 and leads by one over NSW golfer and Japan Tour player, Andrew Evans, and by three over last week’s contender at the Vic Open Whitney Hillier, Cassie Porter, New Zealand’s Momoka Kobori and Canberra’s Matthew Millar.
Green, one of only four Australian females to win a major title, is playing just her second tournament of the year but the manner in which she won last week at 13th Beach and her hot start today suggests she will be great chance to make it two in a row to get her 2022 season underway.
