Arnold wins Victorian Open

Scott Arnold shot a three-under 68 on Sunday to win the Victorian Open by a stroke over Kurt Barnes.

Arnold finished four rounds at 12-under 272 to capture his first professional victory at Spring Valley Golf Club. He was able to hold off Barnes, who shot a five-under 66 in the final round and finished at minus-11.

"It's great, especially the way I did it as well," Arnold said. "I just sort of hung in there all day."

Michael Hendry, who was tied with Arnold coming into the day, shot his second straight two-over 73 en route to a third-place finish at seven-under 277.

Matthew Ballard (72), Peter Lonard (67), Leigh McKechnie (66) and Nick Cullen (66) shared fourth at five-under 279.
