“They never thought they were out of it but they were close to possibly being out of it,” said Australian captain Matt Cutler. “We had a really slow start to the week with an even par round at Iriyama (Wednesday) and we thought we might have too much work to do. But, it was the fastest start you could ever see coming.”
 
Australia, which won the Espirito Santo Trophy for the third time, took the lead through six holes of the final round as Lee, No. 1 in the Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking™, was 4 under through five holes on an eagle and two birdies and Oh was 3 under with three birdies.
