Senior wins Australian PGA

Australian Peter Senior won the Australian PGA on Monday beating Geoff Ogilvy in a payoff and in doing so becomes the oldest player to win a major professional tournament in Australia.

With the course water logged, play was suspended on Sunday afternoon with 24 of the 70 players still out on the course. It was the first time since the 1987 Australian Open, that an Australian event had to go into a fifth day.

51 year old Senior made a 10 foot birdie putt on the 18th to finish 1-under-71 to match Oglivy on 12 –under for the tournament to force a playoff.

Both players parred the first playoff hole, but Ogilvy three-putted for a bogey on the second playoff hole to give Senior the title.

"What a great way to finish the year," Senior said. "Geoff hit a pretty indifferent iron shot into 18, and we all know how difficult it is to get down from that area. But I would have rather made my (birdie) putt instead of Geoff three-putting, but that's what happens."

Australians’ Nick O’Hern, Peter Fowler and Andre Stolz all tied for third place on 11 under.
