The Ladies European Tour concluded with an unusual ending as three winners emerged from a tournament played over just 18 holes due to inclement weather. The Australian Women's Classic, organized in collaboration with the WPGA Tour of Australasia, saw Danish golfer Nicole Broch Estrup, Taiwanese player Pei-Ying Tsai, and Australian Jess Whitting declared joint winners with scores of 66 (-6) strokes each

Rain rendered the Bonville Golf Resort (par 72) course in the city it's named after unplayable, forcing organizers to reduce the tournament from 54 to 36 holes.

However, adverse weather persisted, flooding the course again on the third day, leading to the cancellation of the Australian Women's Classic. Consequently, with only 18 holes played, the event was deemed unofficial by the LET, and no points were counted towards the money list.

Two Italian players participated, with Virginia Elena Carta finishing 11th with 69 (-3) strokes, while Alessandra Fanali placed 116th with 77 (+5) strokes. Fanali missed the cut as only the top 67 players advanced to the final round.

Behind the three leaders were English golfer Cara Gainer and Czech player Klara Davidson Spilova, tied for fourth with scores of 67 (-5). Korean Jeongmin Cho, Slovenian Ana Belac, Belgian Manon De Roey, Czech Sara Kouskova, and Swiss Chiara Tamburlini finished tied for sixth with scores of 68 (-4).

Filipino golfer Samantha Bruce didn't achieve a notable result, finishing 77th with 74 (+2) strokes. However, she did manage to score a remarkable "hole in one" on the 11th hole, a 145-yard par 3, hitting the ball directly into the cup from the tee.

The Ladies European Tour (LET) is a professional golf tour exclusively for women, established in 1978. Headquartered at Buckinghamshire Golf Club near London, England, it operates as a company limited by guarantee, a legal structure commonly adopted by UK-based sports organizations.

This structure allows the LET to prioritize maximizing returns for its members through prize money rather than generating profits for investors. The tour is overseen by a board of directors and a Players' Council.
