Allenby wins fourth Australian PGA title


COOLUM, Australia – Robert Allenby shot a 5-under-par 66 Sunday for a four-stroke victory at the Australian PGA and his second tournament win in two weeks.

Allenby, who won last week’s Nedbank Challenge in South Africa, claimed his fourth Australian PGA title. His last came in 2005, when he swept all three tournaments in the so-called Australian Triple Crown – the PGA, Open and Masters.

The 38-year-old Allenby, who only entered the tournament three weeks ago when Vijay Singh withdrew with a knee injury, finished with a 14-under total of 270 on the par-71 Hyatt Regency resort course.

Fellow Australians John Senden (67) and Scott Strange (69), were tied for second. Marc Leishman was in fourth after a 68, five back of Allenby.
