    Some athletes are spoilt for talent

    Some athletes are spoilt for talent


    The world's best women's tennis player and former cricket professional is now a golf champion.

    Australian Ash Barty is sitting out the current season and will miss the French Open due to Covid-19 fears.

    She's put her spare time to use from tee to green, winning the local championship title at the Brookwater Club in Queensland.

    Barty, a 3.9 handicapper, won her matchplay final with five holes to spare.
