Former US Women’s PGA champion Hannah Green won the Vic Open by six shots after closing with a 1-under 71 on Sunday. Green, who won the Women’s PGA tournament on the LPGA Tour in 2019, returned from a three-month layoff to win her first professional title in Australia with a 13-under par total of 276 at the 13th Beach Golf Links.
She had bogeys on the second and seventh holes but carded three birdsies over the last seven holes to extend her margin in blustery conditions.

“The Vic Open was my first ever professional event so it definitely has special memories for me coming here; Some pretty random memories, but good memories,” said Green, who won her first two titles in the United States.
“This is just a steppingstone and will give me some positive vibes. It’s nice to finally have my name on a proper trophy over here”. Karis Davidson and Whitney Hillier started and finished the final round in a share of second spot, both finishing with even-par 72s.
Hillier narrowly missed a birdie putt on the last hole that would have given her outright second. Su Oh and Cassie Porter finished in a tie for fourth at 5 under. He is among the most successful sportsmen ever, as well as one of the richest in the world.
When it comes to firsts Tiger Woods is always present: 15 majors won, 110 professional tournaments, the most successful golfer in the history of this sport. Statistics that explain why he managed to stay at the top of the world ranking for 683 weeks (of which 281 consecutive) and above all because in 2014 he became the first sportsman in the world to have broken the billion dollar barrier.
Astronomical figure that also justifies the fact that Tiger Woods can afford a yacht like the Privacy, a real fairytale boat. And obviously we are talking about something that has cost a lot. If you imagine a luxury yacht and some comfort on board, then Privacy has it.
48 meters long, with a total area of 600 square meters, this yacht was purchased by the golfer in 2004. Equipped with five cabins capable of accommodating a total of ten people, she also boasts four quarters for nine crew members.
Tiger Woods usually calls it “my dinghy” even if everything looks like a dinghy: with a cruising speed of 18 knots, he also has a gym on board where the golfer keeps training. Woods, in fact, prefers to stay on this yacht during the tournaments held in New York.
With cherry wood interiors, Privacy also features an elevator for three people, a huge Jacuzzi, large enough to accommodate eight people, and the inevitable cinema room and corner bar. The extra something for this mega yacht is provided by the area that Tiger Woods wanted to be dedicated to scuba diving: this also explains the presence of a decompression chamber (inflatable) and an area dedicated to oxygen filling cylinders.
The luxury are also completed by three jet skis and two scooters for short shore excursions. Obviously, all of this has a price: Privacy cost 17 million euros and its annual maintenance amounts to 1.7 million euros.
