Haru tore up The Grange Golf Club course, shooting -7 under par 65 in the final round, to post -16 under par, and win the Australian Women’e Open title, with a three shot winning margin.

As usual it was all down to the putter, Haru needed only 26 to complete the final round;

“The putter, wow, unbelievable.”

Defending Champion Lydia Ko had to settle for second place, at -13 under for the tournament, a good last round of -5 under 67 not good enough to challenge for the win.

The rest of the field were way back, Karrie Webb claiming third place on her own at -9 under par. The whole field went backwards on the last nine except the top two.
