AMATEUR

Amy won the ANZ Ladies Masters at Royal Pines GC in Australia at the beginning of February 2006 at the age of 16 years, 9 months and 18 days. She became the youngest winner of an LET event and was also the first amateur to win on Tour in 22 years, since Gillian Stewart won the IBM European Open at the Belfry in 1984. Following her victory the LET’s Executive Director, Alexandra Armas, approved Amy’s membership of the LET - that approval requiring a special exemption due to her being under the age of 18 normally required for membership. Amy turned professional in October 2006 at the age of 17 and became the Tour’s youngest member. She earned exempt status as a tournament winner until November 30th, 2009. At the ANZ Ladies Masters, Amy defeated 22-year-old Catherine Cartwright of the United States in a one-hole play-off but because of Amy’s amateur status, Catherine Cartwright claimed the AUS$120,000 first prize. As a result of her playoff victory on Australia’s Gold Coast, Amy was invited to play in two further events on the Ladies European Tour as an amateur in 2006: the Evian Masters in France, where she finished tied 53rd and the Weetabix Women’s British Open at Royal Lytham & St Annes, where she finished 60th. She won the Smyth Salver as the leading amateur in the championship, beating Belen Mozo by six strokes. Amy was also the New Zealand Amateur Champion in 2005.
