Posted by on   /   Posted in golf news

Chad Pfeifer has held on to win the 2019 Ottobock Australian Amputee Open by three shots at Pelican Waters.

The American entered six shots of the final second placeer Geoff Nicholas of Australia on the last day.

After a nervous start, Pfeifer took his first birdie of the day on the par-4 ninth and was never on his way to a final round 80.

Pfeifer, a retired army veteran, claims the Ottobock Australian Amputee Open for the first time.

New South Welshman Nicholas signed for a round of 77 but that wasn't enough to catch up with the American, the highlights came with birdies on the 6th and 16th holes.

Shane Luke of Bankstown Golf Club, the Australian representative who shot the round of the day, two over 74, also finished third on the podium.

Fellow Australian representative Stephen Prior finally fourth in the rankings 12 shot further back, fellow countryman Tony Coates.
