Germany’s Aline Krauter wins Women’s Amateur Championship

LIVERPOOL, England — In another win for German golf, Aline Krauter rallied from an early deficit to win the Women’s Amateur Championship on Saturday with a 1-up victory over Annabell Fuller at West Lancashire.

The victory came a week after Sophia Popov won the Women’s Open at Royal Troon.

Krauter, a 20-year-old who plays at Stanford, was 3 down through four holes of the 18-hole championship match. He won six of the next eight holes to build a 3-up lead. Fuller closed to the deficit to one hole with a birdie on the 17th, but Fuller could only match pars with Krauter on the final hole.

The victory gives Krauter a spot in the Women’s Open next year at Carnoustie. The Women’s Amateur champion typically gets a spot in the U.S. Women’s Open, the Evian Championship and the Augusta National Women’s Amateur.

It was the second time in three years a German won the Women’s Amateur, with Leonie Harm winning in 2018.
