The Monday Recap: Sweeney's week

This week's recap shifts away from the PGA Tour and goes a bit local with Bradenton's Jaclyn Sweeney.

The Andover, Mass. native and former Arizona State standout made her debut on the Ladies European Tour this past week.

Sweeney tackled the ISPS Handa Women's Australian Open at the Commonwealth Golf Club in Melbourne.

After opening with a 1-under par 72 on the par 73 layout, Sweeney failed to card any other under par rounds.

However, she did make the cut and finished in a tie for 54th for 1,791.70 Euros.

Yani Tseng won her second straight Australian Open title with a 16-under par total.

Sweeney's ball striking was decent as she nailed 66.67 percent of greens in regulation for the tournament.

What hurt Sweeney was something she said a month prior to the LET debut - the short game.

Sweeney only got it up-and-down 8 of 23 times, which is about 35 percent.

She also failed in converting from the sand, saving par or better from bunkers 4 of 12 times.

Next up for Sweeney is the ANZ RACV Ladies Masters in Queensland this week. Following her second Australian tournament is next week's New Zealand Women's Open.

Stay tuned here for tee times and updates.
