Steph Kyriacou cashes in $112,000 before setting sights on LPGA tour

·

Rising Australian golf star, Steph Kyriacou, has ended her Ladies European Tour season by banking a 70,000 euro ($112,000) windfall, ABC News reports.

Kyriacou won a 50,000 euro bonus for finishing third in the Tour’s season-long Order of Merit. She also finished joint-fifth on Sunday at the concluding Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana, which earned her another 20,000 euros.

It was a welcome birthday present for Kyriacou who turned 21 this week and who is now up to 77 in the world golf rankings.

Kyriacou is now flying to Alabama in a bid to earn her card at the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) qualifying series.

“I’m happy I played well and got third, also happy I have the opportunity to go to the States and try to get on the LPGA Tour,” Kyriacou, who spent some of this season and all of last travelling with her father who acted as her caddie, said.

“It has been a good year but I can’t wait then to go home.”
