Ella Scaysbrook and Kayun Mudadana have taken home the Rene Erichsen Salver and South Australian Classic trophies, respectively, at Royal Adelaide Golf Club, with Mudadana winning after a dramatic four-hole playoff.

Hot off her win at the Women's NSW Open Qualifier at Bathurst just weeks ago, Scaysbrook edged out runners-up Abbie Teasdale and Amelia Whinney by one shot to lift the historic Rene Erichsen Salver trophy.

The 18-year-old carded rounds of 72-74-71-73 to finish at 2-under for the week. She carded three bogeys in a row in the middle of her final round but held strong to edge out the two chasing her.

Scaysbrook is currently ranked No. 336 in the Golfweek/ Women's Rankings.

"It was a pretty solid week, I didn’t do much wrong and just played my own game," she said.

"It was pretty close for the whole 18, really, a bit of back and forth."

In the men's South Australian Classic, Kayun Mudadana and Blake Phillips headed to a playoff after both finishing the week at 6-under.

It took four holes to separate the men, with the two New South Welshmen each not wanting to give an inch.

Eventual winner Mudadana set his week up with a 5-under 67 in the second round to finish with scores of 70-67-74-71 for the week.

Mudadana is currently ranked No. 636 in the Golfweek/ World Rankings.

"I played really good all week. I just tried to play really smart and consistent," he said.

"I hit a lot of greens this week and just tried to capitalize on that.
