Mia Lines (Royal Queensland) also made the most of the perfect conditions to win the girls title with rounds of 76-74=150 that included two eagles on day two, after playing the perfect drive and fairway shot on 15 to within 10cm for an easy tap in putt, and on 18, Mia slam-dunked her second shot from 55m’s out for an easy two and her second eagle.
