Justice Bosio, the teenager from Caboolture Golf Club, became the winner of the first-ever female event at the storied Queensland amateur tournament in a triumph she rated "my biggest by far". Bosio, just 16 and in year 11 schooling on the Sunshine Coast, won the……………
South Australian Junior Amateur and the South Australian Junior Masters earlier this year.
She won the inaugural Keperra women’s event by a shot from Hye Jun Park and Minji Kweon, who played in the final group together.
Bosio posted five-under-par after two closing 67's to go with opening rounds of 73 and 76 and waited to see if it was enough. But Park and Kweon both bogeyed the 72nd hole and left her with the victory as she prepared for a playoff.
Bosio has had a consistent year that includes not only her first senior title win in Adelaide, but a win at the Queensland Junior Masters, runner-up in the Queensland Stroke Play and fifth in the Queensland Amateur, and third at the Katherine Kirk Classic.
Justice also won The Invincibles 2020 Matchplay and IGA Sunshine Coast Junior Masters Championships.
Ironically, she only just made the cut at five-over-par before a chat with her father unlocked the secret. "After the second round, I went home with my Dad, and I have all these videos from all my lessons on Coach Now, from Richard (Woodhouse, her coach).
"I just looked at those and I found that my position in the backswing was so open. That's why I was hitting it everywhere. I worked on fixing that and that's why it went straight!"
Bosio began the final round five shots back and focused on shot-by-shot. "Every birdie I got was a bonus," she said. "I managed to get to five-under. It was a bit of a nail-biter watching the last group come in, but I managed to get the win!"
