COOLUM, Australia (AP) - Greg Chalmers won the Australian PGA Championship on Sunday for his second straight major Down Under tournament victory, beating Australian countrymen Robert Allenby and Marcus Fraser with a par on the first hole of a playoff.
The left-handed Chalmers, the Australian Open winner two weeks ago at The Lakes in Sydney, will have a chance to complete the Australian Triple Crown next month in the Australian Masters in Melbourne.
Chalmers closed with a 5-under 67 to match Allenby (68) and Fraser (69) at 12-under 276 on the Hyatt Regency resort course. Australians Adam Scott (68) and Aaron Baddeley (72) followed at 10 under.
American Bubba Watson had a 77 to drop into a tie for 12th at 7 under.
