Oh, what a finish for young Aussie golfer Su Oh

AUSTRALIAN rising star Su Oh produced a birdie blitz on the final four holes to record the first win of her professional career in the Australian Ladies Masters at Royal Pines.

The 18-year-old started the final round in a tie for fourth at three-under, one behind a trio of leaders that included English players Charley Hull and Holly Clyburn.

After being even through her first 14 holes, Oh (pictured) lit up the course with four consecutive birdies to finish on seven-under, three clear of Hull, countrywoman Florantyna Parker and Korea's Eun Woo Choi.

Oh, who capped an excellent 2014 season by helping Australia win the world amateur team championship in Japan, was playing just her second tournament as a professional.

Earlier this month she was one of three young players added to Golf Australia's "rookie squad". The trio will receive funding and specialist assistance throughout 2015.

Her victory also secured a two-year exemption on the Ladies European Tour.

Hull, last year's European Tour order of merit winner, had a meltdown on the par-four sixth. The 18-year-old sprayed her tee shot left and into trees, having an air-swing on her second stroke before taking a drop for an unplayable lie. She then sent her fourth shot to the right of the green before two-putting for a disastrous triple bogey.

Gold Coast 16-year-old Rebecca Kay finished as the leading amateur on two-under.
