22-year-old New South Welshman Cameron Davis has trumped a leaderboard full of PGA TOUR stars to win the Emirates Australian Open.
Starting the day, six shots back of overnight leader and World Number 12 Jason Day, Davis fired a phenomenal 7-under 64 to win his first professional title on the ISPS HANDA PGA Tour of Australasia.
Davis began his campaign on Thursday firing an opening round of 63 to lead before over par rounds of 72 and 74 on Friday and Saturday dropped him down the leaderboard.
However his talent shone through at The Australian today as he fired five birdies, an eagle and bogey to capture the Stonehaven Cup by one shot from fellow New South Welshman Matt Jones and Swede Jonas Blixt.
A further shot back on 9-under the card was Queenslander Cameron Smith and another stroke off the pace at 8-under the card was Day who rounded out the top-5.
The four players to finish behind Davis at the Emirates Australian Open are all PGA TOUR winners which highlights a bright future lies ahead for the newly crowned champion.
As well as his national title, Davis has secured a place in the field at the 147th Open Championship to be played at Carnoustie Golf Links from 19-22 July.
Earning the other two positions on offer at the Emirates Australian Open were Matt Jonas and Jonas Blixt.
More to come.
