Van Pelt seals Perth win
Bo Van Pelt claimed his first European Tour win with a two-shot victory at the ISPS HANDA Perth International in Australia on Sunday.
Van Pelt led going into the final round and despite pressure from fellow American Jason Dufner, always looked in control as he carded a 68 to post a winning score of 16-under. The 37-year-old has come known as somewhat of a nearly man on the PGA Tour, winning just once in his career, despite being one of the most consistent players in the game. However, he held his nerve on Sunday and was understandably delighted to have got the job done. "Jason and I had a great battle and played well," said Van Pelt. "It definitely got tight there at the end but luckily for me I came out on top. "It's been a battle; the wind blew, the greens were firm and fast, and it was just a joy to play all week. Whenever you get a lead you want to take advantage of it so it was nice to finish one off this week."
