Min Woo Lee closed with a 68 featuring five birdies, four bogeys and an eagle at the par-5 9th to win the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship by three shots at 20-under.
This victory was his third on the DP World Tour and his second on home soil. He is the fourth Australian winner of this event since it was first added to the schedule in 2016 following Nathan Holman (2016), Cameron Smith (2018, 19 and 22) and Adam Scott (2019)
"I've always thought I could win, but it took a while to get over the hump, but two wins in the last month or so," he said referring to his win at the Macao Open on the Asian Tour in October. "Yeah, I'm really proud of my team and myself and yeah, I made it interesting early on and through the middle, but ended up hanging on, so I'm really proud.
"I know Rikuya [Hoshino] is a really good player and he kept knocking on the door, but it was the exactly same as my last win, just the playing point. I just kept coming, so I knew I just needed to keep playing well and do my thing and I did. Yeah, I'm really proud of the way I made some up and downs and some putts."
Hoshino also closed with a 68 to finish second at 17-under followed by Australians Marc Leishman (64) and Curtis Luck (69) in third and fourth place at 16- and 15-under respectively.
Chile's Joaquin Niemann finished fifth at 13-under after carding a 67 that included an ace at the par-3 4th.
