Breakthrough win for Aussie in Korea

6:21 am on 26 April 2010

The unheralded Australian golfer Marcus Fraser landed the biggest title of his career yesterday with a four shot win in the weather-shortened Ballantine's Championship in South Korea.

Fraser's victory at the event, co-sanctioned by the Asian and European Tours, earned him 700-thousand dollars, and ended a seven-year title drought.

New Zealand's Mark Purser had a final round 81 to finish last of the 68 players who made the cut.
