2012 - CHRISTEL BOELJON
Dutchwoman Christel Boeljon won the 2012 Gold Coast RACV Ladies Masters by one shot in dramatic fashion.
Starting the day three shots behind South Korean So Yeon Ryu, Boeljon held her nerve all day and critically on 18 when she sunk her 1.5m putt for the victory.
Boeljon posted a solid four under 68 to take the title over Ryu, who shot even par 72, and the fast finishing duo of Italian Diana Luna and South Korean Ha Neul Kim. All three completed their tournament on 20 under.
Sharing the lead with Ryu down the final stretch, the Dutchwoman was able to make two brilliant up and downs on holes 15 and 16 to importantly stay in the lead with the South Korean. As she headed up 18 there were four players all on 20 under, and Boeljon knew a birdie on the final hole would do it. After reaching the green in two and with Ryu in the greenside trap, Boeljon left her eagle putt 1.5 short but made the putt for victory.
2011 - YANI TSENG
Taiwan's Yani Tseng shot a closing 68 to win the Ladies Masters at the Royal Pines Resort and claimed the world No. 1 ranking from Korean Jiyai Shin.
Tseng, 22, who has played the Ladies Masters on Queensland's Gold Coast since she was a 16-year-old amateur, produced rounds of 67, 66, 63 and 68 against par of 72 to finish at 24 under par, four shots clear of Australia's Nikki Campbell and American Stacy Lewis.
Tseng's elevation to the top spot in the rankings is almost routine for to the Ladies Masters. Others to use the tournament as a springboard to No. 1 are Webb, Annika Sorenstam and Lorena Ochoa.
2010 - KARRIE WEBB
The much anticipated battle between the undisputed champion of Australian Women's golf, Karrie Webb, and arguably her heir apparent and the defending champion of the ANZ Masters, Katherine Hull, appeared as if it might become a reality on day four of the event at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast. Webb would eventually run out the winner by a massive six shots over Hull and Korean Bo Mee Lee but she was pressed hard in the first 14 holes today before extinguishing the challenge of Hull and others and then waltzing to an emphatic victory, her 7th in the past 13 stagings of the event.
2009 - KATHERINE HULL
Australian Katherine Hull cruised to a five stroke victory at the ANZ Ladies Masters at RACV Royal Pines Resort in Australia on Sunday and confirmed her status as one of her country’s fastest rising sporting stars. Hull, who began the final round with a three stroke lead over compatriot Tamie Durdin, recorded a winning total of 16-under-par 272.
The 26-year old LPGA Tour regular fired rounds of 69, 67, 68 and 68 and became only the third Australian to win the tournament in its 20-year history, after Jane Crafter and Karrie Webb. “If anyone would have said to me that I would shoot four rounds in the 60s I would have been absolutely ecstatic,” said Hull, who collected a winner’s cheque for $90,000.
2008 - LISA HALL
England’s Lisa Hall fired a six-under-par 66 on Sunday's third and final round to take a one stroke victory from second round leader Hyun Ju Shin, to post a winning total of 13-under-par 203.
Hall, playing in the penultimate three-ball, had posted her score as Shin stood on the 18th tee tied for the lead on 13 under.
Hoping for a play-off, Hall watched from the back of the 18th green as Shin, from South Korea, putted.
Shin had a 25 foot birdie chance for the title, but left it four feet short, and then missed the second putt, effectively handing Hall the title.

With her in the final group were England’s Laura Davies and Sweden's Liselotte Neumann and all three had eagle putts at the 18th to overhaul Geddes who had finished at 18 under. While the other two missed, Crafter holed a putt from 14 metres that never looked in doubt.
