New Zealand golfers were well off the pace at the Victorian PGA today which was won by Australian David McKenzie.

McKenzie finished on 275 while the best Kiwis were defending champion Gareth Paddison and Michael Long who tied for 17th on 288, 13 shots adrift.

Long came into contention after a third round 67 but then faded yesterday firing a 75. Paddison carded rounds of 77, 66, 74 and 71.

The other Kiwis who made the cut, Pieter Zwart 292, David Klein 295 and Ryan Fox 296 finished further down the field.

Next year, she's so close

She's still working towards it, within three years

It may be longer than we think, within five years

The expectation might be too much, maybe never
