Choi got through to the final after a pair of solid wins in today's quarter and semi-final matches. In the Morning match she accounted for her Concord club mate Sophie Yip, 3&2, before getting the better of her NSW Women’s State teammate, Stephanie Kyriacou, two up.

Yoon defeated Queensland’s Caitlyn Campbell-Nyman in the morning match 4&2, before showing no mercy to Darcy Habgood in the afternoon Semi final 5&4.

Choi was happy with her win this afternoon and is pleased with her form going into tomorrow’s final.

“It was a tough match(against Kyriacou). I was two down and made a few birdies to win,”

“I’ve been practising pretty hard, so its a thrill to get to the final,” she smiled.

“I would love to see my name on the title. It’s been a long time since I won but it would be nice to do it again.?? Choi believes the experience of winning the title once before will stand her in good stead against a tough opponent.

“I've played this every year since I won it (in 2014) and I haven’t been close, so hopefully tomorrow, I’ll have a good day and see what happens,” she smiled.?
