Pampling gets first tour title in Australia

SYDNEY -- Australian Rodney Pampling broke through for his first Australasian PGA Tour title on Sunday when he won the Canon Challenge.

The 29-year-old fired a closing round of three-under-par 69 to finish with a total of 18-under-par 270.

He was three shots clear of Geoff Ogilvy, who closed with a 67. Last week's Australian Masters champion Craig Spence came with a late rattle to take third after a brilliant 64.

Pampling started the final day five shots clear but let his lead slip to two before recovering his nerve.

He became the eighth first time winner this season on the Australasian circuit.

"I was a bit worried there for a while," Pampling said. "I didn't think I'd make another birdie, but I did and it was nice."
