GOLD COAST, Australia (AP) ― Greg Chalmers made par on the seventh hole of a playoff while Adam Scott three-putted for bogey to give the Australian left-hander his second Australian PGA championship.

Chalmers, who shot an 8-under 64 Sunday at Royal Pines after trailing the leaders by seven strokes going into the final round, and Scott and Wade Ormsby, who both shot 71, finished with 72-hole totals of 11-under 277.

Ormsby dropped out of the playoff when he made par on the third playoff hole, while Chalmers and Scott birdied the hole.
