Hannah Green (born 20 December 1996) is an Australian professional golfer and winner of the 2019 Women's PGA Championship.

Early life[edit]

Green was born in Perth, Western Australia.

Education[edit]

Green attended Como Secondary College and was in the golf academy at the school.

Career[edit]

Green is the ambassador for the Como Golf academy.

Green turned professional in 2016. She plays on the LPGA Tour and ALPG Tour.

Green has two pro-am wins on the ALPG Tour. She played on the Symetra Tour in 2017, winning three times, finishing second on the money list and won the Rookie of the Year award. She earned her 2018 LPGA Tour card as a result.

In June 2019, Green won her first major (and first LPGA Tour event), the Women's PGA Championship, by one stroke over defending champion Park Sung-hyun. It was the first wire-to-wire win at the Women's PGA Championship since Yani Tseng in 2011 and the first major win by an Australian since Karrie Webb at the 2006 Kraft Nabisco Championship.[1] In winning the event, Green also became only the third Australian woman to win a major, after Webb and Jan Stephenson.[2]

Before her maiden victory on the LPGA Tour, Green's best finish was third place at the 2018 ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open.[3][4] and her best major finish was a tied for 16th at the 2018 ANA Inspiration.[5]

On 1 September 2019, Green won her second LPGA Tour event at the Cambia Portland Classic,[6] while in December 2019 she was awarded the Greg Norman Medal.[7]
