Robert Allenby wins title for the 4th time

Australia’s Robert Allenby continued his hot streak by capturing his fourth Australian PGA championship with a four-stroke victory on Sunday.

Allenby, who took a one-stroke lead into the final round, shot a five-under 66 to post a 14-under total of 270 at the Hyatt Regency course in Queensland.

Compatriots John Senden (67) and Scott Strange (69) tied for second at 10 under.

The 38-year-old Allenby, who won the Sun City Challenge in South Africa last week, also claimed the Australian PGA title in 2000, 2001 and 2005.

“When you start with the lead all you have to do is to hold it and don’t do anything stupid,” Allenby told reporters. “I did what I had to do from the first hole to the last hole.

“I had some very, very tough competitors behind me and I had a lot of respect for them. So I tried to just pace myself, I tried to hit as many fairways as I could, I tried to hit as many greens as I could.

He added: “That’s what I did all day, I just felt totally in control on every shot.”

Allenby was flawless on Sunday, posting five birdies and while several players got to within a stroke of the lead during the final round, his third birdie of the day on the par-five 12th gave him a cushion.

He extended that advantage with two further birdies on the par-five 15th and par-four 17th holes.

“It’s a nice feeling to win in that fashion,” said Allenby. “It’s always nice to come down the last with a four-shot lead. I was pretty consistent but to do it under the gun in the final round, that’s pretty special.”
