Elliott wins Queensland Stroke Play in play-off

courtesy: Golf Queensland Breanna Elliott has won the 2010 Queensland Women&aposs Stroke Play Championship at Bribie Island Golf Club, defeating Australian Amateur Champion Stacey Keating on the first play-off hole after both players had finished the championship at 5-under par. Elliott (Yarrawonga – pictured), who had recorded a stunning course record 67 (-7) in her opening round, appeared well out of contention following a third round 78 (+4) this morning which left her five shots adrift of Keating heading into this afternoon&aposs final round. She responded brilliantly however in recording a final round 5-under par 69, while Keating stuttered to an even-par 74. Playing together in the final group, Elliott squared the contest with a birdie on the 17th hole with both players recording pars on the 18th to send the championship into a playoff. On the first play off hole, Elliott&aposs par was enough to claim the title after Keating finished with a disappointing three-putt bogey. Queensland state representative Ali Orchard (Surfers Paradise) finished third following an impressive final round 73 (-1) to finish on even par (296) for the Championship. Corrine Swan (Burleigh Golf Club, 3 handicap) won the 72 hole nett division with a nett 288 for the championship. Runner-up in the nett division was Tiffany Claire-Levis (Horton Park, 6) with a nett 295.
