MELBOURNE, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Aaron Baddeley parred the fourth playoff hole Sunday to win the European Tour's 2008 MasterCard Masters Golf Tournament in Melbourne.
The playoff was necessary because both Baddeley and Sweden's Daniel Chopra finished regulation at 13-under-par 275.
Chopra started the day with a one-stroke lead over Baddeley and fellow Aussie Ken Barnes.
Chopra (71) grabbed the outright lead with a chip-in birdie at 15 and another birdie at 16, but a bogey at 17 left him tied with Baddeley (70).
"This is fantastic," Baddeley said after his second victory on the European Tour. "In the playoff, I felt like I was swinging the club really well. I just kept hitting the same shots and felt that I'd wear (Chopra) down."
Baddeley had a great chance to end the playoff on the first extra hole, but missed an 8-foot putt for birdie.
Stuart Appleby (69) finished third at 11-under 277 and Peter O'Malley (67) was fourth at 10-under 278.
