Dodt pots hole in one at Open

GATTON’S Andrew Dodt marked his return to home tournament play in sensational fashion yesterday when he scored a hole-in-one during the final round of the Australian Open Championship at The Lakes course in Sydney.
Dodt stole some of the final day spotlight from winner Geoff Ogilvy with his ace landing in the hole on the 170m par-three 15th on the third bounce.
The hole-in-one helped Dodt complete a solid tournament where he tied for 21st alongside former Open winners Peter Fowler and Peter Senior following a final-round 71.
Dodt finished the championship on five-under-par 283.
His score was highlighted by a second-day 69.
Ogilvy completed his domination of the tournament with a final-afternoon 69.
His rounds of 68-65-67-69 set up a 19-under-par victory score of 269.
Matt Jones and Alistair Presnell completed an Aussie trifecta with a tie for second place on 273.
Five-times Australian Open winner and now part-time tournament player Greg Norman tied for 32nd in a group of five players including event favourite Adam Scott.
Norman finished at minus three after hitting 74-69-70-72.
Dodt will continue his summer stint in this weekend’s PGA Championship at Coolum.
