Hannah Green became Australia's first major winner since 2006 with a 1-shot victory over Sung Hyun Park

Women’s PGA Championship report: What happened at Hazeltine National Golf Club?

Australia’s Hannah Green held off a stellar field to get her hands on a first LPGA and major title.

She headed into the final day one stroke ahead of former World No. 1 and 2-time major champion Ariya Jutanugarn.

Despite a run of three bogeys in four holes around the turn, the Australian was able to steady the ship and stay ahead of her challengers, which included Nelly Korda and defending champion Sung Hyun Park.

Park made sure that Green would have to work for her victory by forcing her to make par at the last after she drained a nice putt for birdie to draw within one-shot of the lead.

The leader rose to the challenge and did so in impressive fashion as she got up-and-down from the green side bunker to save par and clinch victory.

With the triumph, which was rounded off with a finishing 72, Green becomes the first Australian since Karrie Webb in 2006 to win an LPGA major.

Women’s PGA Championship report: Talking point

England’s Mel Reid achieved her best ever finish in a major championship after she ended up tied for 3rd.

The World No. 325 was level par through the first 54 holes but found some fantastic form on Sunday as she carded a stunning 6-under 66.

Reid now spends the vast majority of her time playing stateside on the LPGA Tour, and is yet to secure a win despite having six to her name on the LET.
