Hannah Green is one of the leading Australians in the women’s game, with a major title among four LPGA Tour victories in her career.

Green was born in Perth, Western Australia in December 1996, and took up the game from a young age, with her father introducing her to golf. She had a successful amateur career, with four wins in a four-year stint, before turning professional in 2016, prior to her 20th birthday.

The Australian’s first season on the Symetra Tour was an amazing one. She won three times, with victories at the Sara Bay Classic, Murphy USA El Dorado Shootout and IOA Golf Classic. Green finished 2nd in the money list and was named the Symetra Tour Rookie of the Year for 2017. She only had to wait 18 months for her first win on the LPGA Tour, which came on the biggest of stages. 

Green was victorious at the 2019 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship by a single shot to claim her maiden major title. Wins have followed at the Cambia Portland Classic, JM Eagle LA Championship and most recently, the HSBC Women’s World Championship. She has also represented her country on the grandest stage, playing for Australia at the Tokyo Olympics.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
