MacManus is "Master of the Amateurs"

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (Jan 14, 2011) --It took a while for the putts to drop, but when they did, Tarquin MacManus stormed home to win the Australian Master of the Amateurs.

The Queenslander made six birdies on his closing 10 holes on Royal Melbourne's west course en route to a spectacular seven-under-par 65, including a 20m birdie bomb on the final hole accompanied by a fist pump and a roar from the gallery.

The University of Arizona student finished at a tournament record 12 under after four rounds, beating Tasmanian Ryan McCarthy, New Zealand's Ryan Fox and England's Andrew Sullivan into joint second place, three shots back.
