The 3&2 victory over Queensland s Josie Ryan completed a week which saw her come through the two stroke play rounds as the top qualifier. It’s been such a great week and everyone has made me feel so welcome, Puckett said. The level of sportsmanship this week has been fantastic and hopefully I ll be able to come back next year. The match was square through the front nine before Puckett won holes 10, 15 and seal victory with a par putt on the 16th hole.
