'At my age, it feels great to win again. It's not often that golfers can win when they are 42' Wang Ter-chang found that winning feeling again - after six years - as he won the tournament by one stroke, holing the last putt for par to avoid what would have been a three-way play-off with Australian pair Marcus Both and Jarrod Lyle yesterday. 'I knew I had the title in my hand when my approach shot landed quite close to the pin on the last hole. I knew I was safe and that I had won again, at last,' said the 42-year-old Wang, who safely two-putted to make par and strike a blow for all 40-somethings. 'I'm happy as it proves that I can still be competitive. It feels good,' said Wang, who shot a final-round 68 to total 14-under-par 270 at the windswept Macau Golf and Country Club, and take home the winner's cheque of US$43,312. 'I hope I don't have to wait another six years to win my next title,' joked Wang, who leapt from 31st to eighth place in the Asian Tour Order of Merit. 'I hope to return to Macau next year and win again.' Both and Lyle finished one shot behind on 13 under to share second spot. In joint-fourth place was another Australian, Terry Pilkadaris, and American Jason Knutzon, the winner last year, and Edward Loar, all of whom were on 10 under, four shots behind. China's most-recognised golfing face, Zhang Lianwei, finished joint-eighth on six under, while drawcard Fred Couples was joint-12th after a disappointing final round of 70 to take him to five under, 11 strokes behind Wang. The Taiwanese held a slender one-shot lead overnight and had to defend it all the way, especially against Both, who was an ever-present danger and briefly shared the lead on the front nine. Wang had stretched his lead to two shots at one stage and was on 15 under after 11 holes, but two successive bogeys on the 12th and 13th holes gave Both and the rest of the field renewed hope. 'I was watching the leaderboard all day and the birdie on 11 was important as it gave me a cushion before my consecutive bogeys on the 12th and 13th. After regaining my lead on 15, I just played steadily and when I hit the green in regulation, I knew I would win,' said Wang. Both failed to capitalise on Wang's bogey mishap blundered on the 14th and 17th, both par-threes, for bogeys to give Wang breathing space once again. Both, who was two flights ahead of Wang, finished his round with a birdie to card a 66. 'I misjudged the breeze on both those par-threes badly. Those couple of mistakes and a couple more chances for birdies which I missed cost me,' said the 25-year-old Both, who had started the day three shots behind Wang. Both, and fellow-Melbournian Lyle (who also sank a birdie on the 18th hole to go 13 under), then had to wait for Wang, who was in the last flight with American Loar. They could only hope that the Taiwanese, walking up to the scenic last hole fringing the South China Sea, holding a one-shot lead would lose his nerve and falter. But the sprightly Wang was more than equal to the task. His beautiful approach shot landed 10 feet from the pin and he had the luxury of having two strokes in hand. So he two-putted for a par. 'I was hoping he would hole his putt for birdie. Losing by two shots is less painful than losing by one,' said Both. 'But it is hard for me to say that I'm disappointed. I am happy with the way I played.' Compatriot and Asian Tour rookie Lyle was also delighted with his performance. Playing in only his third tournament, Lyle was thrilled when he sank a seven-footer for birdie at the last hole to draw level with Both on 13 under. 'I'm really pleased. I went out and did everything I wanted to do this week. The fact that I can match it with everyone else is a huge boost for me. It is all positive vibes,' said Lyle. The 23-year-old Lyle, who overcame leukaemia six years ago, saw his title hopes dip when he double-bogeyed the par-five 12th attempting to be too aggressive. But it was a tremendous effort from a golfer who says he has been given a 'new lease of life'. Watched all the way by his mum Sally, Lyle ended with a 67. 'Mum's been a big support for all through my life. We were in Hong Kong last week and spent a lot of money. It's nice to finish well to reimburse myself a little bit,' Lyle laughed. But it was Wang who was smiling the widest yesterday. 'At my age, it feels great to win again. It's not often that golfers can win when they are 42 years old,' said Wang.
