Jordan birdied the first extra hole to secure his second Australian Open title after he had finished the day tied with Ashley and Cameron on -12 under for the competition;

“We love coming here, I’ve cut out a lot of overseas travel this year, but we still came here, because that’s how important this event is to us and I haven’t gone anywhere else.”

“I had a chance last year on 18 and didn’t hit a great putt, and this time I had that same chance with a very similar putt in the playoff and capitalized.”

“So drew back a little on that and said this is our time to close this one out.”

“I’ve been in a bit of a stall hitting the shots when they mattered.”

“To hit those two shots in there right where I wanted to hit them and then to make the putt with it, is really big going forward and it’s something I can draw on all next year.”

It was a tough experience for Ashley and Cameron who a both carded great final rounds of -6 under 66, while Jordan returned -3 under 69.
