Breanna Gill has survived a sudden-death playoff to claim the Australian Women’s Classic – Bonville this afternoon.
AT the end of regulation play, it was Gill and long NSW Professional Danni Vasquez who remained tied at six under.
It took just a hole for Gill to claim the crown with a clutch up and down for birdie on the first playoff hole.

June On Song carving out a superb 64
June Song has produced easily the best round of the tournament to be the early clubhouse leader at the Australian Women’s Classic – Bonville.
The Avondale amateur shot an 8-under 64 at Bonville Golf Resort to launch herself toward the top-10 on the leaderboard, setting a mark of 2-under for the other players to better.
As the final groups begin their final stretches on the last day, Breanna Gill and Stephanie Bunque are tied at the top of the leaderboard on 6-under after 12 holes.
The pair are one stroke clear of Wollongong-based Danni Vasquez who has fired five birdies in the opening 12 holes with just the one blemish.
Amateur Belinda Ji is putting together a fine round to be just one stroke further back on 4-under. An eagle on the seventh hole gave Ji the momentum to be in contention.
Last week’s Women’s NSW Open winner Momoka Kobori is within striking distance of the leaders, sitting in fifth position just three strokes off the lead with five holes to play.
When Song nailed an eight-metre putt for eagle on the 10th she was 7-under thru her first 10 holes but she said being in contention wasn’t her main concern at that point.
“My best round ever was 6-under and I’ve had so many 6-unders and 5-unders this year so my goal was definitely to beat my best round ever which I did so I’m happy with that,” Song said.
