Coles wins New Zealand PGA Championship

Australian Gavin Coles drained an 80-foot putt on the final hole to cap a 4-under-par-68 Sunday and win the New Zealand PGA Championship by three strokes.

Coles followed rounds of 70, 72 and 72, compiled in consistently difficult conditions, with the final day's best round. He finished at 282, 6-under for the tournament. Brendan Jones, Bradley Hughes and Bill Lunde wound up at 285.

Coles matched or beat par on the 7,137-yard Clearwater Resort course in each of the tournament's four days to remain one of only nine players with sub-par totals in the wind-affected event. His putt on the 18th green completed a round of six birdies, two bogeys and 10 pars.

American rookie Lunde, who shared the third-round lead at 4-under, carded a 73 on the final 18 holes of the $790,000 event. Jones and Hughes finished with 71s.
