Adam Scott has won the Australian PGA Championship on Queensland's Gold Coast by four shots from young American golf star Rickie Fowler.

The home favourite Scott was making his first appearance in Australia since winning the Masters in April, and the overnight leader finished with a four under 67 for a 14-under total ahead of Fowler, who shot a 68 at Royal Pines.

The best-placed New Zealander was Gareth Paddison in a five-way share of sixth, nine strokes behind Scott after a par 71 final round.
