Terry Price wins New Zealand Open

Australia's Terry Price won the New Zealand Open on Sunday, closing with an even-par 70 for a one-stroke victory over New Zealand amateur Brad Heaven.

The 43-year-old Price, also the tournament winner at The Grange in 1993, had a 9-under 271 total. He pulled ahead on the par-4 16th, driving the green and two-putting for a birdie.

"I'm sorry to spoil his party today but I'm sure one day I'll be sitting back in my rocking chair and watching Brad win New Zealand Opens," Price said.

Heaven, a senior at the University of Toledo, also shot a 70. He opened with rounds of 64 and 66 and had a 72 Saturday.

"I obviously gave myself a pretty good chance today," Heaven said. "I wanted to get into contention on the back nine and I did that, but I hit a couple of wrong clubs in the middle there and that was it. Terry's a great player and he just hung in there."

Australia's Peter Senior (65) and New Zealand's David Smail (66) tied for third at 6-under 274.
