Australian Open playoff between Goggin and Clark

7:47 pm on 14 December 2008

There will be a playoff between Australia's Mathew Goggin and South Africa's Tim Clark to decide the 2008 Australian Open golf championship at Royal Sydney.

Both players finished on nine-under par, one stroke ahead of Australians Robert Allenby and Stephen Dartnall and New Zealander David Smail, who was the overnight leader but blew a four-shot lead during Sunday's round.

Smail carded double bogeys on the 15th and 16th holes to finish a shot behind Clark and the Goggin.
