Presnell takes the Moonah Classic title

A birdie on the last hole gives Alistair Presnell a one-shot victory at the Moonah Classic.

Alistair Presnell showed terrific poise to bounce back from a bogey on the 16th by carding a birdie on the last hole to claim the Moonah Classic. Presnell carded a final round four-under par 68 to finish on nine under and edge ahead of Peter O'Malley by one stroke in what was a thrilling finish at Moonah Links. O'Malley struggled on the back nine with bogeys on the 13th and 17th holes in a two-under par 70 to open the door for Presnell, who performed brilliantly on the last to clinch the tournament.

The overnight leader Miguel Angel Carbello had a horror final-round 78 to fall out of contention and finish the tournament on three under. The Argentinian bogeyed the opening hole, and things got progressively worse from there with a total of seven bogeys and just one birdie on the 18th in a forgettable final round. Michael Sim finished in third on six under with a final round of 70 while Terry Pilkadaris (70), Adam Bland (71) and Americans Skip Kendall (70) and Daniel Summerhayes (72) finished in a tie for fourth on five under. *PA Sport
