New Zealander Murray Martin became the first Kiwi since 2009 to win the Australian Men's Senior Amateur Championship with a six stroke victory at Royal Queensland Golf Club.

The New Plymouth member finished with rounds of 74-74-74 to be at 6-over par. He is only the second Kiwi to win the title, following in the footsteps of three-time champion Rod Barltrop.

Martin said he was delighted with the victory.

“It’s great to put my name under senior greats including Rodney Barltrop and Stefan Albinski,” Martin said.

“It’s been great to come over and play with my Australian mates and wonderful to have my family here to see me sink the last putt to win the championship.”

Defending champion Sam Christie (Indooroopilly) stormed home in the final round to finish in a tie for second place with Kiwi Frank Borren.

Christie carded a final round 1-under par 71 - the best round of the championship.

Kiwi Michael Leitch finished in a tie for fourth with Concord member Paul Maslen.

For the host club, Michael Maher was the best placed in a tie for 8th.

The first Australian Men’s Senior Amateur Championship was first played in 1981 and is contested over 54-holes Stroke Play.
