For Artis, it was a bitter sweet result, “I played pretty solid golf all day today. I hit some great shots coming down the stretch. I birdied 15 and 17. I hit great one into 17 to give me a one shot lead. I just hit a poor tee shot on the 18th and left myself too far in and it was a great birdie by her. That was one of the toughest holes on the golf course. That was an awesome birdie. “
“I have done some pretty hard work with Gaz (Gary Edwin) and Luke Edwin leading into this week and felt my game was pretty good leading into this week. I putted solid all week and holed some good putts today and all week. That was the main thing.”
The week is not all lost; she took home a cheque for over $15,000 and walked away with a great deal of confidence in her game and where it is going.
“It absolutely gives me confidence. It is all about putting yourself in contention, week in and week out, and eventually and hopefully one day I can finish it off again. But I am looking forward to China and Turkey. I had a great Aussie summer, so I can’t be disappointed at all.”
She has moved up to 2nd on the ALPG Order of Merit.
