Gold Coast (Australia): Australian Nathan Holman won the European Tour co-sanctioned Australian PGA Championship in a three-way play-off at Royal Pines yesterday.
Holman won on the first play-off hole with a par from American Harold Varner III and South Africa's Dylan Frittelli. Holman worked his way into contention for the play-off with a final round one-over 73 in tough playing conditions.
It was the second consecutive year the Gold Coast tournament had been decided beyond the regulation 72 holes.
But unlike last year's marathon seven-hole playoff between Australians Greg Chalmers, Adam Scott and Wade Ormsby, only one hole was needed.
