Cameron Smith made the initial nervous embarrassment before adjusting his position on the world's top 20, before defending his fellow player Mark Lismman to defend Australian PGA championship.
Brisbane Pratibha won the finishing win by finishing 70 runs in the fourth round at 16-under-crown and defeating Lishman (69) by two strokes in Sunday's shootout in Royal Pines.
Smith died at 12th place and was buried, but Leimman kept his nerve to spoil the best chance of winning the first home on home soil.
Wins first entry into the top 30 and PGA returns 25 years of confidence when they return to the tour.
"I want to enter the top 20 … in the context of its venerable season in the United States, she said that she is a big step forward in my situation to stay there and win a golf tournament."
"I felt for Leo; he always works hard against a fellow and tries to win the golf tournament.
"It's a weird, but I'm sure Christmas will be a beer or I look after it and we'll be back again." Smith started the three-day clear, but Lashman went on over it. Fourth, he was suddenly behind and, through the 12th hole, faced two-shot deficiencies. But when Lishman's 14th row went out, his luck changed.
Smith retained the lead on an eventful 15th hole where he lost another turn and kept the second shot behind the 16th hole signage. Taking a free drop from the Tea Box of the Party Hole Cross-3, Smith put his chip inside one meter and threw it out for birdie.
Lishme missed her birdie effort after Lily's regulatory approach, and then on 16 March, incorrectly mistakenly removing another mid-range belt to play Smith with two holes to play the crucial two-shot buffer.
Lishme gave his cap to his junior World Cup teammate, but despite the claim, it was claimed that he would take only 20 minutes.
"I was taking the leadership of a couple (going to Boston) in the past nine and lost it. It really damages, but if it is not more than that," he said. "You have to handle those things, when they start your way, they will make the most of the pace and try to keep them on your way.
"I had it and unfortunately he lost it." Smith is the first player to win the first Australian PGA title from Robert Allenby in 2001. Greg Norman (1984-85) and Ken Nagel (1958-59) are among some others who have achieved this feat.
Meth Miller made a fourth card with English England player Roger McGowan (under 11) with four England 68, who went on a cut-off line after registering nine-under-63 on Sunday with nine-birdies on Sunday.
