Rod Pampling
Pampling gets his hands on his first Australasian Tour trophy

Rod Pampling edged out Marcus Fraser at the third play-off hole to claim the Australian Masters title in Melbourne.

The two Australians finished on 12-under after Fraser had carded a fabulous final round seven-under-par 65 to take it to its dramatic conclusion.

Joint overnight leader Robert Allenby, a two-time Masters champion, fell away in the closing stages to finish third.

Steve Webster was seven shots off the pace on five-under, with Dave Horsey and Jamie Donaldson on four-under-par.

With Fraser, 30, sat on the practice range, Pampling had three opportunities to seal victory in the final round but missed chances on the 16th and 17th holes.

Fraser kept the pressure on but on the third play-off hole he had to settle for a bogey opening the door for his 39-year-old fellow countryman.


Pampling grabbed his chance with a simple three-foot par putt to secure his first win on the Australasian Tour.

South Africa's Tim Clark (67), Australia's Nathan Green (70) and Sweden's Alexander Noren (68) finished tied for fourth at eight under.
