H.V.3, Harold Varner the Third, is the Australian PGA Championship 2016 Champion at the Gold Coast in Australia, his maiden Tour victory.
Harold shot -7 under par 65 in the final round of the Australian PGA Championship, to cruise to victory with a -19 under par total, and a two shot win. Last year he lost in a play-off, this year he returns in glory to claim the title;
“That was pretty awesome, I had a lot of fun out there today.”
“I’ve thought a lot about losing the play-off here last year, it was the closest I came to winning last season so it’s been playing on my mind a little bit.”
“I’m now a much better, more mature player than I was 12 months ago and this win is big for me.”
“Winning is hard, I don’t care where you tee it up, so to get it done feels great.”
Andrew Dodt was looking for a wire to wire win, but could not keep up with the leader over the closing nine holes, -3 under par 69 last round for a -17 under par total, and second place.
Adam Scott, who has won this title before had to settle for third place, at -15 under par, a last round -5 under par 67 not good enough to mount a serious challenge.
