Rookie Australian Daniel Popovic completed a golfing fairytale Sunday, leading from start to finish to claim the Australian PGA by four shots. Popovic held his nerve over the closing holes as fellow Australian Rod Pampling imploded with bogeys on 16 and 17 and a double bogey on 18 to drop four shots and surrender the lead. Pampling finished tied for second with another Australian Anthony Brown, one shot clear of Geoff Ogilvy and Brad Kennedy.
