Chalmers beats Scott in Australian PGAGreg Chalmers made par on the seventh hole of a playoff while Adam Scott three-putted for bogey to hand the Australian left-hander the Australian PGA Championship.
Chalmers, who shot an 8-under 64 Sunday at Royal Pines after trailing the leaders by seven strokes going into the final round, and Scott and Wade Ormsby, who both shot 71, finished with 72-hole totals of 11-under 277.
Ormsby dropped out of the playoff when he made par on the third playoff hole, while Chalmers and Scott birdied.
Scott missed a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole that would have won it and did the same on the second extra hole, when Ormsby missed from seven feet.
Chalmers finished his round about an hour before the other two players in the playoff. He won the Australian PGA Championship in 2011, also in a three-way playoff.
The playoff was the longest for a top-tier tournament in Australia.
On the third playoff hole, Ormsby’s bid for a second pro win faded as he went wide on his approach.
