GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) — Cameron Smith shot a final-round 70 to successfully defend his Australian PGA title with a two-stroke victory over Marc Leishman on Sunday.
Smith finished with a 16-under par total of 272. Leishman closed with a 69.
England’s Ross McGowan shot a course-record 63 to finish tied for third, five strokes behind.
“There’s always a few missed opportunities. I played lovely today,” McGowan said. “I’m really happy to shoot nine under and didn’t really see a score like that out there but when I hit a few irons close and made the putts, it made life a little easier.”
