AUSTRALIA'S MATTHEW MILLAR CLAIMS NZ MASTERS TITLE

12/01/2018


Australian Matthew Millar has won the inaugural REBEL Sport Masters by four shots at the Wainui Golf Club.

Beginning the final round two shots behind leader, New Zealander Daniel Pearce, Millar fired a round of 4-under 67 for a tournament total 11-under 273 and to become the first winner of the 2018 ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia season.

“I went out there today just trying to mind my own business, just trying to play my shots and knuckle down on every single one of them, I didn’t want to see any leader boards,” said Millar.

“I’m thrilled with the win and just really happy not to have dropped any shots out there today.”

Playing in gusty winds, Millar showed his experience and patience around the Wainui layout to remain bogey free and take out the tournament in fine style.

In second place was the experienced New Zealand professional, David Smail who recorded an impressive round of 7-under to rocket up the leaderboard.

Other notable performances were that of Peter Fowler, Ryan Fox and Harry Bateman who round out your top five.

After starting with a disappointing opening round, Fox clawed his way back to show why he has been so successful in 2017.
