Ogilvy wins first title at home

7:33 am on 8 December 2008

The Australian golf star Geoff Ogilvy finally broke his duck on his home tour when he claimed the Australian PGA championship with a two stroke win yesterday at Coolum in Queensland.

The 2006 US Open champion played a flawless final round of 69 to overhaul Tasmania's Mathew Goggin who threatened run runaway with the title until he found water on the 15th hole.

In temperatures of more than 30 degrees, New Zealand's Tim Wilkinson was on his own in second place midway through the round, but his challenge fell apart early on the back nine and he tied for 14th .
