Kiwi Keh wins Women’s Riversdale Cup
Munchin Keh from Tinirangi Golf Club has secured the 2015 Women’s Riversdale Cup with a six stroke win over her sister, Wenyung Keh, Australian Hannah Green and Singapore’s Princess Superal in Melbourne.
Keh set up the win with a third round 5-under-par 68, closing with a 3-over-par 73 to finish at 4-over for the tournament after opening rounds of 77-75.

The Riversdale Cup victory adds to Keh’s list of achievements, including four wins on New Zealand’s Charles Tour (Muriwai Open 2013, 2014, LawnMaster Classic 2014 and Carrus Open 2013).
In 2014 Keh, a plus 2 handicapper, successfully defended her North Island Stroke Play title at the Akarana Open, finished runner-up at the New Zealand Stroke Play Championship and was a semi-finalist at the New Zealand Amateur Championship.
The Keh sisters have certainly been making names for themselves in New Zealand.
In 2012, Munchin claimed the 2012 New Zealand Amateur Championship from her younger sister where for the first time in the 119 years of the championship two sisters contested the New Zealand Amateur Final.
The win on Sunday for Keh sees her move inside the world’s top-100 on the R&A World Amateur Ranking following a strong performance at the New Zealand Womens Open where Keh secured a top-25 result.
Keh’s name will be now etched alongside former Riversdale Cup winners including Shelly Shin (2014), Grace Lennon (2013) and Whitney Hillier (2012) and Celia Cho (2011).
