Smith wins two-man playoff at Australian PGA Championship

Smith wins two-man playoff at Australian PGA Championship

In-form Australian Marc Leishman fired seven-under-par 65 to storm to a share of the lead of the Australian PGA on the Gold Coast on Friday.

It was a dramatic final day at RACV Royal Pines Resort with Smith and fellow Australian Jordan Zunic, who equalled the course record with a superb 64 on Saturday, doing battle in a play-off.

Cameron Smith, early leader Jordan Zunic and Rhein Gibson were tied for fourth at nine-under. He finally got going again with circles at 12 and 13 but another dropped shot at 14 stopped the momentum and he closed with four pars to register a 71, five higher than the 66s he shot on days one and two.

"Last year to this year was a huge improvement, just the grass filling in and you can actually play some shots that Mr Marsh wants you to play".

Fox, with super-caddy Steve Williams on his bag, carded an uncharacteristic 75 in the opening round but was eight shots better yesterday, carding six birdies and a lone bogey to shoot 67 and reach two-under par, 10 shots off the leaders.

Smith and Zunic attacked the pin from better positions to set up birdie opportunities, which Smith capitalised on to take a one-shot lead heading to the final hole.

"I haven't even had time to process that but it's been a really good year".

"It's always great to get off to a flying start but if you can't back it up in the second round or at least be thereabouts, you're kind of just chasing your tail for the rest of the week", Bland said.

"Because of that, obviously my golf game wasn't as sharp as I would like it to be".
