Moseley & Lonard share PGA Title

Australia's Jarrod Moseley and Peter Lonard have jointly won the Australian PGA Championship after carding four-round totals of 17-under-par 271 and squaring one playoff hole in fading light.

The pair both made par on the first playoff hole, the par-four 18th, at Queensland's Coolum course before conferring with officials and shaking hands as joint winners.

Lonard started the final round five strokes behind Moseley but fired a four-under-par 68 including a 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole while Moseley closed with seven consecutive pars in his final round of 73.

"I would have liked to go and play one more hole or play as many more holes as we have to," Lonard told Australian television. "We've got commitments tomorrow."

Moseley said: "It's a bit unfortunate and as Pete said we have commitments tomorrow. I'm happy to be the joint champion alongside Peter Lonard.

"It's too dark now. It's just one of those things. We just ran out of light."

Moseley, 30, had been 18-under-par, leading Lonard by five strokes, when the third round was completed on Sunday morning.

The 1999 Heinken Classic winner had started the day on 16-under par with eight holes to play in the third round.

A tropical thunderstorm forced the early abandonment of play on Saturday because of the threat of lightning strikes with almost half the field still to complete the third round.

Australia's Stuart Appleby was outright third on 14-under-par 274 after closing with a 67 while former world number one Greg Norman, 47, playing to large galleries in his home state, was fourth with a four-round total of 13-under par 275.
