Scott 2nd at Memorial, Minjee T12 at US Women’s Open: Aussies on Tour Roundup

By Mark Hayes, Golf Australia

There was a Lee lifting the silverware at the US Women’s Open in South Carolina. but unfortunately for Aussie golf fans, it wasn’t our Minjee.

The West Australian battled hard all week in Charleston and ground out an impressive T12 result, making it five consecutive top 25 finishes in majors.

But #AussieOfTheWeek honours go to Queensland legend Adam Scott for his brilliant display in Ohio, the 2013 Masters champ finishing runner-up at Jack Nicklaus’s Memorial Tournament.

Scott came within a whisker of lifting the trophy, but fell two shots short of red-hot American Patrick Cantlay who fired a closing 64.
