A sensational birdie at the final hole gave Demi Mak Jun-wi her first Ladies' Close Amateur Championship crown - and finally laid to rest the memory of 2005 when, as a 14-year-old, she all but threw away the title. She started the day with a three-shot lead over Raniasih Pomareda at the Discovery Bay Golf Club, but gradually lost her grip. Mak fired her approach on the par-five 18th long, but conjured a miraculous flop shot to seven feet and when Pomareda could only make par, Mak holed her birdie putt to take the title by one stroke.
