Standing 6’7” (2m), Moses, who plays off +2, tore up the golf course with rounds of 69-66 -63 -69 for a 267 total to finish seven shots clear of last year’s champion Taylor Macdonald. “I was hitting wedges into the par-5s all week,” said Moses, who plays out of Bonnie Doon Golf Club in Sydney. “I also putted the best I have ever in a tournament. This is definitely the highlight of my amateur career. “I finished bridesmaid (runner-up) in the NSW, South Australian and Victorian amateur tournaments so I’m happy to finally win a big event.” The 22-year-old said his goal was to turn professional, but not until the end of 2015 – “maybe”. Macdonald (68-69 -69 -68 – 274) finished runner-up two shots clear of Sanctuary Cove’s Cory Crawford (69-71 -69 -66).
