Minjee, the current Australian amateur champion, fired a final round of -6 under-par 68, to top the leaderboard at -16 under par. Her effort beat the field by a margin of six shots, an unbelievable result;
“It feels unbelievable, it hasn’t really sunk in yet, I’m pretty happy and just stoked that I have won. I saw the leaderboard after fifteen, and I was like, I just have to finish nicely and I’ll be OK.”
Second place went to Scotland's Vikki Laing, who somehow came from nowhere at the halfway point, to fire rounds of 67 and 66 to finish at -10 under-par for tournament.
As Minjee is still an amateur, Vikki takes home the money, a cheque for $22,500.
In third spot was was Sarah Jane Smith, who shot a last round of 73 to finish on -8 under par.
