Jack Kalis won the Australian Open for the first time, beating James Rogerson in a sudden death playoff after a tie on 16 under par 202 at Canberra International. Extra holes were also required in ladies - Sandra Hutchison defeating Marie Hutchison. Kalis, who took third place in 2017 and 2018, posted a superb third round 46 on Sunday morning to jump into contention, one out of the lead heading into the final round, in which he tallied 52 to Rogerson's 53. Kalis, who was also third in 2012 and 2014, birdied the first tie hole to deny three-time champion Rogerson, who finished runner-up for the second year in a row. Holder Tom Rickit finished four strokes back in third place. Full gents scores here  

Marie Hutchison led the ladies open by two with a round to play but Sandra finished with a 56 final round to force a tie on 227 for the 72 holes. A par on the third play-off hole was sufficient to give Sandra her first Australian Open title (after two second places and a third spot in the past). 2009 champion June Drury posted a couple of impressive level par rounds on Sunday to clinch third place on 229.
