Sydney, Australia ( - Aron Price shot 2-under-par 70 on Sunday to claim a 4-stroke victory at the NSW Open.

Price, a winner on the Tour in 2008, finished 72 holes at 19-under- par 269 and earned his first professional victory on home soil.

Adam Bland fired a 67 at Castle Hill Country Club to finish in a tie for second place at 15-under alongside Jack Wilson and Aaron Townsend, who both carded 68s.

Bryden MacPherson (68) and Jun-Seok Lee (68) shared fifth at 14-under, while PGA Tour player Steven Bowditch stumbled to a 76 and ended in a tie for seventh with three others at minus-13.

Bowditch shared the overnight lead with Price, but the former managed just two birdies against four bogeys and a double bogey on Sunday to drop out of contention.

With Bowditch out of the picture, Price cruised to victory, notching birdies at the first and 15th during his bogey-free victory lap.
