• Aussies on Tour: Green, Lee set sights on Paris

Aussie pair Hannah Green and Minjee Lee have set their sights on Paris after both finished inside the top 25 at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in Washington.

The champion in 2019, Green closed with a round of 1-under 71 on Sunday at Sahalee Country Club, finishing level with Lee (74) at 4-over for the championship and tied for 24th.

Former Gold Coast high schooler Amy Yang (72) claimed her first major championship by three strokes at the event that marked the end to the two-year Paris 2024 qualification period.

Although the Australian team will not be officially announced until later this week, Green and Lee can now both look forward to another Olympic campaign given they are both inside the top 15 on the Rolex Women’s World Golf Rankings.

A two-time winner this season, Green will first return home to Perth before heading to France for The Amundi Evian Championship starting July 11.

“Getting the opportunity in Tokyo was an amazing experience,” said Green.

“I’m super excited for Paris to be alongside Minjee as well. Both from Perth and both played junior golf together so it’s really cool for us to both be there. Even her brother (Min Woo Lee) is in the team.

“I think we have really good vibes for the Olympics, and I’m excited to get to Le Golf National.”

Paris will represent Lee’s third straight Olympic appearance, the 28-year-old also excited to share the Olympic experience with her brother for the first time.

“Both of us will be there and it’s kind of nice. I might be watching him maybe on the weekend if I go in a little bit earlier,” said Lee.

“It’ll be pretty exciting to represent our country out at the Olympics and it’s always such a great honour to be able to do that.

“Really looking forward to it.”

Elsewhere this week, Kelsey Bennett's tie for 13th was our best at the Czech Ladies Open and Steph Bunque and New Zealand's Hanee Song shared 14th at the LET Access Series event in Spain.
