A high pressured match made every shot crucial for the contestants. Crikelair led the match through the first seven holes, but Amiee was right behind her looking for an advantage. At hole eight Aimee showed her experience by tying the match, but it wasnt until hole 13 that Amiee stepped up her game to win a hole and take the lead.
Holes 14 through 16 proved difficult for both contestants with neither gaining a significant edge. On the 17th hole, Amiees extensive experience proved too much for Crikelair. After Crikelairs second shot, a halfhearted chip from just off the green, failed to make it in the hole, the door was left open for Amiee. Knowing it was her chance to win the Big Break III title, Danielle calmly putted in to claim the match 2 and 1.
Danielle Amiee feels she is ready for whatever may come her way. 'My heart and talent have finally come together, and I will change my entire lifestyle if I have to,' she says.
With her new Big Break III title, Danielle will now go on to compete in the Michelob ULTRA Open at Kingsmill, May 5-8 and the LPGA Corning Classic, May 26-29, which airs on The Golf Channel. The Michelob ULTRA Open will see Danielle competing against the top LPGA Tour players, Annika Sorenstam, Grace Park, Juli Inkster, Cristie Kerr and defending champion Se Ri Pak. Only time will tell if the skill that won her a Big Break will also make her a success on the LPGA.
