Adam Bland finished just a shot outside the play-off at 17 under, three clear of two more Australians in David Bransdon and Marc Leishman. Defending champion Harold Varner III was then six shots off the lead. For Smith, victory comes in just his 11th European Tour event and hands Australia a clean sweep in the early stages of the 2018 Race to Dubai following Wade Ormsby's win at the UBS Hong Kong Open last week. "Neither my mum or dad were there for the (PGA Tour) win in New Orleans," he said. "To be able to win in front of them and in front of other family and friends, and then winning in Queensland, makes it so much more special to me. "I haven't even had time to process that but it's been a really good year. My goals this year were to win one down here and it's nice to tick that one off. "A bit of a grind out there today, waking up early to get away from this rain that mysteriously hasn't come. Yeah, tough day out there and congrats to Jordan as well, he played well." CAMERON SMITH A Zunic bogey on the tenth had Smith in a share of the lead and he led on his own after a birdie on the 17th but a missed five-footer on the last sent the contest back to the 18th tee.
