10.15 am: Play Underway Here At Bonville
Welcome to Championship Sunday at the Australian Women’s Classic – Bonville.
For 74 players (minus nine amateurs), today is payday and the end of a fruitful week. Importantly, for one, it will be a significant victory, and with it will come the spoils of a winner’s exemption on the Ladies European Tour (LET).
England’s Meghan MacLaren leads the way, by a shot, from Spain’s Carmen Alonso, with Rising Star Alice Hewson lurking a couple of shots back.
A two-time winner of the Women’s NSW Open, when asked about whether she preferred to lead or chase on the final day, MacLaren admitted she felt she was a much happier golfer out in front.
“You go out there to shoot the lowest score possible, and getting to the lead is what’ its all about. It’s where I prefer to be,” She said.
In the next to last group, Swedens Maja Stark is already a two-time winner on the LET in just her rookie year, alongside an 18 year veteran of the tour, Magdelena Simmermacher.
The third player in the group, 2022 NSW Amateur Champion Sarah Hammett, rounds out the group. Aged just 15, and playing in her women’s Classic, the young Queenslander will have learned some incredible lessons regardless of where she finishes.
Bonville has been a battle all week, make no mistake, the weather has made an impact. However, each of the combatants at the top of the leaderboard has a reason to be there.
