The New Women's Amateur Champ

Since we didn't get to see much on TV -- and I couldn't find any video of her win -- I thought I'd do a quick post on Aline Krauter's win at the Women's British Amateur at West Lancashire.

New champion Aline Krauter

Aline is the second German to win in three years -- Leone Harm won in 2018 -- and the second German to win a major in two weeks since Sophia Popov won the AIG Women's Open last week.

This story caught my eye because Aline (a 20-year-old Stanford student) actually has a connection to Sophia, as the two were fitted for clubs together in February before the pandemic really took hold. What a crazy coincidence!

Aline went 3down in the first four holes of the final match against Annabel Fuller, then won four of the next five holes to take a lead that she never gave up. She won the match 1up.

She's now exempt (as an amateur) into the AIG Women’s Open (where Popov will be the defending champ), US Women’s Open, Evian Championship, and Augusta National Women’s Amateur.

Not a bad story for German golf, eh?
