ST. JOHN'S WOOD, Victoria, Australia (Feb. 18, 2012) -- Jake Higginbottom of New South Wales ran away from the field and never looked back. He started his day seven strokes ahead of defending champion Nathan Holman. His final round of 69 gave him a four round total of 269, 19-under-par and was seven ahead of second place finisher Daniel McGraw.

McGraw made a run the final day finishing with a 64 that matched Higginbottom's tournament record low he set the first round. McGraw finished up at 276 (70-74-68-64.)
