From PGA Australia, by Martin Blake:

Jed Morgan has created history with an 11-stroke victory in the Fortinet Australian PGA Championship at Royal Queensland Golf Club...

Morgan, 22, equalled the tournament record of 22-under par but broke the championship’s biggest winning margin – previously eight shots held by Hale Irwin and Greg Norman – in beating Andrew Dodt by a remarkable 11.

He is also the youngest winner of the tournament in 60 years.  Read more
