Arthur delivers in German Open

IPSWICH'S Bree Arthur has taken a huge step to establishing herself among the world's golfing elite.

Arthur finished in a tie for fourth at the Ladies German Open in Munich on Sunday.

Rounds of 69, 72 and a career best 65 had Arthur tied for the lead heading into the final round.

But she wasn't able to maintain the form on the final day, firing a one-over 73 to tie for fourth place, four shots behind French winner Anne-Lise Caudal.

It remains Arthur's best result, given she was competing against the likes of four-time major winner Laura Davies.

Davies finished second after losing a play-off to Caudal.

In Arthur's second year on the international scene, she has posted four top 20 results (including two top 10s) from just eight starts.

Arthur showed her class in the third round, firing six birdies, a bogey and an eagle.

"I was feeling pretty confident before I teed off because I was hitting the ball so well the last couple of days and the putts didn't drop for me," Arthur was reported saying on the Australian Ladies Professional Golf (ALPG) website.

"I've been hitting the ball well the last few events and it's just come down to the putting for me.

"In Turkey, I finished tied for 16th or something but my stats tee to green were as good as the girl that won."

While fourth was a major coup for the Brookwater 23-year-old, a win would have earned her of €52,500 and an Audi A5 cabriolet car. It wasn't to be this time. But Arthur's improvement in recent seasons indicate it is only a matter of time until she lands a European title.
