Australian Dodt wins at home

September 3: Andrew Dodt of Australia won the 2014 Isuzu QLD Open after firing a 67 for a seven-under-par 281 on Sunday.
Dodt, an Asian Tour winner, overcame a six-shot deficit to win by two shots from countryman Tom Bond.
“I knew I was playing well and I know the course well. I had a good game plan and I stuck to that all week,” said Dodt, who birdied four in his closing six holes.
“Patience was the key. I stayed patient all week, hung in there when I needed to, holed the putts when I needed to and came out on top.”
The Australia, ranked 30th on the Asian Tour Order of Merit, needed to hole a crucial putt on 18 to seal the deal.
“I knew if I made some birdies early to put some pressure on, then get to the back nine within two or three of the lead that I would be a chance,” added Dodt.
“This is my second win as a Professional so I am pretty pumped right now. To win your State Open means a lot. I have worked hard in the last few months and it has paid off,” he explained.
