Wood wins NSW PGA

Victorian Tim Wood has resisted strong finishes by Peter Senior and Michael Long to take out the 2008 New South Wales PGA Championship at Riverside Oaks on Sunday. The 27-year-old finished the tournament on 16-under and, despite bogeying the final two holes, finished a stroke ahead of Senior and Long who both ended up equal second a shot further back on 15-under-par. The $15,000 title is Wood&aposs first Von Nida Tour triumph. Brent McCullough finished in outright fourth position on minus 13 while New South Welshman Edward Stedman and Wood&aposs fellow Victorian Tim Wise both ended the tournament on 12-under. Brad Shilton, Dean Kinney, James Nitties and Tristan Lambert all finished in a tie for seventh spot on 11-under.
