Poulter wins Australian Masters

ENGLAND'S Ian Poulter won the Australian Masters at Victoria Golf Club as local favourite Geoff Ogilvy faded on Sunday.

Poulter had a final round 67 to cruise to a three-shot victory at 15 under par.

Victorian Marcus Fraser finished second at 12 under following a final round 64 while Ogilvy shot two-over 73 to finish outright third, 11 under the card.

Ogilvy started the day two shots in the lead but was hunted down firstly by Poulter and then by Fraser.
