Meghan MacLaren birdied the final hole to take a one-shot win at the Australian Women’s Classic at Bonville.
MacLaren led after all three rounds of the Ladies European Tour event, reduced to 54 holes due to rain.
Her last-hole birdie saw her card a 69 to finish on 10-under par, one ahead of Sweden’s Maja Stark.
Compatriot Hannah Burke stormed home with a 65 to finish in a three-way tie for third on seven under.
“I knew someone had got to eight under and I was on seven at that point,” said MacLaren. “I made a good birdie on 14 and 15 and I assumed the lead might be mine at that point.
“I kind of knew it was in my hands.
“I felt if I played the golf I knew I was capable of, I could win, but I tried not to get too far ahead of myself.”
